    Subway's foot-long sub is discovered to be one inch short causing outrage.

    Subway is among the world's largest fast food brands.

    A large group of people on social media is demanding answers from Subway concerning the company’s famous foot-long sub.

    It all started after an Australian man posted pictures of his grinder with a ruler stretched across it on Subway’s Facebook page. The sub only measured 11 inches.

    Shorty after, many angry patrons began submitting their own photos depicting the one-inch short sandwich. At the time of the report, the company had yet to respond.

    This isn’t the first time Subway was caught in the middle of some drama. Last year, rival fast food chain Arby’s launched an ad attacking Subway’s freshness claims. Many customers may have been surprised to learn that Subway’s meat is pre-sliced and shipped from Iowa rather than cut on location.

    Despite the controversy, Subway is consumed by millions around the world.

    Started in 1965 by Fred DeLuca, a high school graduate who wanted to make some money for college education, Subway today is in nearly 100 countries with around 35,000 locations.

    Their annual revenue is estimated to be $17 billion.
