Supply Short @ Subway Kuwait


Subway sandwiches are one of my favorite because they taste fresh and don’t feel heavy after a 6inch sub. I was planning on having a 12 inch sub and I was very hungry, one time last week I called in and they said they didn’t have Turkey Breast for the sandiwch. I asked if they have alternatives and they said they have smoked Turkey which is fine by me, but it took about 5 mins on the phone to get them to understand what I mean by substitute. But last night was the worst, how can a company run out of Turkey when they make sandwiches, they told me that they are out of all kinds of Turkey except for one location in Burj Al Bahar in Hawally and they don’t delivery from there. The supply ran out, which is extremely unexpected, and I was hungry and didn’t have any other option. I really didn’t feel like eating something heavy, and at that point I was starving. How can a company operate like this? They don’t know what their needs are enough to judge the supply of fresh meat they should keep? There are so many subways in Kuwait I don’t know where they are but how could all of them run out of Turkey.

  1. Maybe the don’t stock that much.You can go to ss and get some sm ty unless they too ran out.turkey’s good but, hey this is the world , kuwait doesnt breed turkeys and they dont fly too…

    try caspers turky n swiss good stuff

  4. I have had the same exact issue when ordering an Italian BMT. They replaced turkey with salami and it tasted awful. I couldn’t even finish the sandwich.

    On a more positive note, I tried their salad mixed with buffalo chicken and it was great.

    If you order from Salmiya today, they don’t have pepperoni !!! They don’t even have the chilli sauce (tabasco) !! Now how can they run out of that?!!

  6. @lolcat – Lol! Its a matter of food supply! If its need its available! Its not like all of Kuwait ran out of Turkey! Its the problem with their supply management!

    @Mark – Lol! Very true!

    @lfcq8 – Thank you very much! I haven’t had Casper in a while and trying them out again is a good idea!

    @Kuwaitiful – Agreed their substitutions aren’t always the best! And I will try that salad!

    @ayy – Thats just ridiculous! they should learn to manage!

  7. ive been ordering BMT’s forever but the past 2 months they keep telling me they are out of stock from the peperoni, so i just ask them to replace it and put extra salami….its not the same

    i wonder who their inventory manager is.. he should get fired ASAP

  8. @Sauce – Agreed the inventory manager should be fired post haste!

  9. u should have ordered double whooper instead!
