Subway, the multinational fast-food chain known for its six- and 12-inch sandwiches, has launched a new three-inch version in Pakistan, the multinational food-chain announced in a social media post.

The bite-sized sandwich is the first of its kind for Subway, and designed to provide “value” to Pakistani customers struggling with high inflation.

Last month, Subway advertised the sandwich at a price of Rs360. This comes as many restaurants in Pakistan raise prices or reduce portion sizes due to high costs and depleting purchasing power.

Pakistan has been in the midst of a crisis with high inflation and falling foreign exchange reserves putting pressure on the economy. The inflation rate is still in double digits, which has reduced people’s purchasing power.

Pakistan avoided default after securing a $3 billion bailout package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at the last minute.

However, the loan came with conditions, including a hike in fuel and energy prices. This has led to exorbitant electricity bills, which sparked protests across the country.

Do Pakistani really need subway and pay royalties in foreign exchange for a sandwich which can be easily produced locally?

They are getting ingredients locally at most of international chains. I guess Pakistani fast foods restaurants has lot of scope to introduce less price burgers and boost sales. However, Quality should not be compromised, qty can be!

Subway in Pakistan is an enigma. Pakistan is a Kabab -Bun and spice laden Fries eating Country. Bland sandwiches have little attraction here. Instead of making a clown of itself by 3 inch Sandwich, Franchise better packs up.
