Subway has launched a line of chicken sandwiches and brought back its roast beef sandwich as a permanent addition to the menu, but with higher-quality meat, the quick-service chain based in Milford, Conn., said Tuesday. It also has added a caramel brownie cookie for the holiday season.
The new sandwiches are part of the chain’s “Eat Fresh Refresh” initiative, launched in July, to upgrade its offerings.
There are two new chicken sandwiches highlighting the chain’s rotisserie-style chicken introduced in 2016. The slow-roasted chicken is hand-pulled in restaurants, the chain says.
The Chicken & Bacon Ranch features that chicken along with bacon, Monterey-cheddar cheese and peppercorn ranch sauce on choice of bread.
The Baja Chicken & Bacon is made with chicken, bacon, spicier pepper Jack cheese and a new Baja Chipotle sauce.
Both chicken sandwiches are around $5.59 for a 6-inch sub and $9.49 for a footlong, although prices vary by locations.
The roast beef sandwich is now made with USDA Choice Angus roast beef topped with lettuce, baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and onions on choice of bread. It’s around $5 for a 6-inch and $7 for a footlong.
The seasonal Caramel Brownie Cookie, which is also a returning item, is a combination of crispy cookie and chewy brownie drizzled with caramel. It’s around 79 cents.
Additionally, as part of its holiday promotions, Subway s giving gift cards for a free six-inch sub of guests’ choice for every $25 worth of gift cards they purchase.
The bonus cards must be redeemed between Jan. 1 and March 1 of 2022.
Subway has nearly 40,000 restaurants in 100 countries.
