    My favorite line in this article is simply this:
    Isnt it just amazing how something as simple as cutting 1 dollar off of the Footlong sandwiches has made that much of an impact on everything?

    The cool thing about them exploding in store population is that Subway actually serves decently healthy food. If you cut back on the mayo and sauces and stuff, its a fairly low calory meal, with the range of food groups. A footlong for 5 bucks is a great price. DOn't know if they have those prices here in Canada yet, cause I still pay 7 something, but then I always get the specialty subs. Maybe the basic ones are still at $5, I'm not sure. It's amazing how many subways there are too. Near my work, I know the location of 6 subways within a 15 minute walking radius.

    Now if only the government would catch a clue. If it works for business, it will work if you lower taxes too :) Even just a little.

    People spend more when it costs less. Economics 101.
