Subway In UK Drop Bacon and Ham From Menu To Comply With Islamic Law Jared May Be Next

May 2, 2014

Nearly 200 Subway restaurants across the United Kingdom no longer serve bacon or ham, and will instead serve only halal-prepared meat in an effort to “balance the values of many religious communities,” according to the Daily Mail. Some 185 participating locations will replace the pork products with turkey versions, and notify customers of their compliance with the Islamic practice of preparing meat with signs reading ,”all meats areHalal.” Halal preparations include requiring that the animal be slaughtered by someone who invokes the name of Allah before slitting the animal’s throat. All blood must be drained from its veins, among other requirements. Jared Fogle from a Jewish family may be next.




Eye View Business, Subway Passes McDonalds In Number Of Restaurants But Both Are Intimidated By The Colonel

March 13, 2011

As 2010 drew to a close, Subway edged McDonald’s in locations operating worldwide 33,749 to 32,737, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings in February. Subway, which passed McDonald’s in U.S. locations about nine years ago, has been aggressively seeking growth overseas. Subway opened its first international location in Bahrain in 1984 and expects its number of international restaurants to outnumber its domestic locations by 2020. Both companies are dwarfed in international presence by Yum! Brands, which has 38,000 international locations. Yum! Brands comprises multiple popular franchises such as KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

Both Subway and McDonalds are dwarfed in the presence of the Colonel.
