Subway Breaks World Record

Subway Restaurant breaks a world record with the help of New York Giant’s defensive end Justin Tuck

Subway restaurants broke Guinness World Record.

Subway Restaurants officially broke a Guinness World Record August 15, by constructing the most subs made at the same time by the largest group of people. New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck was on hand to help the Subway team conquer their feat.

In a huddled mass at the Times Center in New York City, over 250 sandwich artists amassed a total of 254 foot-long subs, officially breaking the world record. In preparation for the event, the team had a practice round to make sure they would be able to complete their task. In total, 555 sandwiches were made, but the record breaking number stands at 254.

Each sub-maker had five minutes to make their sandwich, but many finished their subs in one to two minutes.

The spectacle used 189 pounds of avocado, more than 444 pounds of roast beef, ham, and turkey, and more than 275 pounds of fresh vegetables.

The event celebrated the end of Subway’s “Avocado Season,” where customers can add avocado to any of their subs, wraps, and breakfast sandwiches. Subway's "Avocado Season" will wrap up at the end of this month.

All of the subs and left over products were immediately donated to City Harvest, a New York City based organization that feeds the homeless according to Rory Haden, owner of Omnigage, the marketing firm behind the event.

Subway's sandwich bread isn't legally bread, Irish court rules

That's not bread that Subway has been using to make its sandwiches — at least not according to Ireland's highest court.

The republic's Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that because of their sugar content, Subway's loaves don't meet the legal standard for bread.

A case was brought by Bookfinders Ltd, an Irish franchisee of the U.S. company based in Galway, which argued that Subway's bread should be exempt from taxes because it is a "staple" food.

Instead, the five-judge court found that Subway's bread was a "confectionary or fancy baked good," as its sugar-to-flour ratio was nearly five times too high to fall within the legal standard of staple foods.

Under Ireland's Value-Added Tax Act of 1972, bread can't have a sugar content that exceeds 2 percent of its weight of flour in dough to be considered a staple food and therefore tax-free.

All of Subway's heated sandwich bread options — white bread, Italian, nine-grain wheat, honey oat, Italian herbs and cheese, nine-grain multiseed and hearty Italian — have sugar contents of 10 percent.

"There is no dispute that the bread supplied by Subway in its heated sandwiches has a sugar content of 10 percent of the weight of the flour included in the dough," the judgment read.

According to the Irish Independent, the case by Bookfinders stems from a 2006 decision in which the Office of Revenue Commissioners denied it refunds for value-added tax payments made from early 2004 to late 2005. Bookfinders claims that it shouldn't have been taxed and that it is entitled to a refund.

Subway pushed back against the ruling that its sandwiches were made of anything other than bread.

"Subway's bread is, of course, bread," a Subway spokesperson said in a statement. "We have been baking fresh bread in our restaurants for more than three decades, and our guests return each day for sandwiches made on bread that smells as good as it tastes."

In nutritional information on the company's website, all of its bread contains at least 1 gram of sugar.
