Show Notes

This week on the Extra Serving podcast, a product of Nation’s Restaurant News, NRN editors Holly Petre, Sam Oches, Leigh Anne Zinsmeister and Bret Thorn discussed Subway’s biggest menu overhaul in the chain’s history.

The editors decided to discuss the news on everyone’s minds: Subway’s menu overhaul, our most-read story of the week. The largest menu overhaul in 60 years of Subway’s existence changed up the way customers can order from Subway. The update focuses on predesigned sandwiches and moves away from the unlimited customization that Subway became known for. The editors discussed what it means for the customization movement that Subway first started, and that Chipotle took the reins on in recent years.

Next, the team discussed Amazon’s minority stake in Grubhub. The tech giant took over a 2% stake in delivery company Grubhub this week. With the possibility of a sale in the future, what does this mean for the two companies? The team discussed. 

This week’s interview is with Roberto DeAngelis, chief experience officer for Friendly’s, who spoke about the family-dining chain’s new menu offerings, including fig jam and frico.
