Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: A Five Subway Sweep!

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC TV) - Subway continues to set records on the Restaurant Scorecard.

It landed five of its Memphis-area franchises among the top 10 health inspection scores this week, including the Scorecard High Score of the Week.

Subway, 5135 Quince Rd. near White Station in East Memphis, earned that title with a 97 on its health inspection Jan. 18.

"That's good!" smiled Subway's operator Sejal Patel. "I'm proud!"

We bet Subway's also proud of its four other locations that rated high marks this week, the first time a single chain boasted five spots in the top 10:

* Subway, 941 Getwell Rd., East Memphis, 95 on Jan. 17 

* Subway, 1558 Union Ave., Midtown Memphis, 95 on Jan. 19 

* Subway, 1890 Berryhill Rd., Cordova, TN, 92 on Jan. 19 

* Subway, 1204 N. Houston Levee Rd., Cordova, TN, 91 on Jan. 17

Last year, Shelby County Subway stores earned the High Score of the Week five times in seven months.

One week last February, three Shelby County Subway stores owned each of the top three health inspection scores (please click on that Scorecard here:  http://www.wmctv.com/story/14357901/andys-rest-scorecard-subway-above-par-perfect-plus-low-scores-as-of-march-24).

Subway managers attributed their spic-and-span track records to Subway's corporate inspectors. They say the company fields its own team of health inspectors who inspect every Subway monthly.

That's right -- monthly.

The Memphis-Shelby County Department of Health might inspect a single restaurant twice or three times a year.

"(The Subway inspections) are surprise inspections," said Patel. "For food safety, for our cleaning, for operation of my stores."

"That makes me feel better about my family's health (when eating at Subway)," said East Memphis customer Rozalyn Hinely. "That means I'm not going to get E-coli or sick!"

Your performance is sick, Subway. Sick in a good way. You know, like the kids use the word "sick."
