Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Subway's Perfect AGAIN, plus scores

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC TV) - Note to all fast-food franchises:  whatever Subway's doing, copy it.

The company continues its hot streak as the best performing fast-food chain on the Scorecard with its third perfect score in two years.

The Subway at the Shelby Crossing Shopping Center, 6188 Macon Rd., earned a perfect 100 on its Aug. 13 Memphis-Shelby County health department inspection.

It joined the Subway in Bethel Grove, 2669 Lamar Ave., and the Subway in Fox Meadows, 3647 S. Mendenhall Rd., as the third Subway franchise to rate a perfect health inspection since last year.

Subway boasts more High Score of the Week winners than any other fast-food chain.

Last year, it won the title five times in seven months. In one of those months, three of its franchises owned the top three inspection scores.

This year, during one week in January, five Subway stores were among the week's top ten inspections.

"We have a district manager that comes in every month and checks us out," said Subway Shelby Crossing employee Lynn Keller. "So we've got to do it for him."

They do it for their customers, too. Like Gene Cosey.

The guy eats lunch at the Shelby Crossing Subway two to three times a week.

Call it "Subway recidivism."

"I work in a correctional facility," he said, "and we can only take things in that have to be see-through. So they take the time to put things in cellophane for us, and we have no problem getting into the institution.

"It's good to know that we can eat at a place, and we know that they get a score like that."
