Subway is updating its menu just in time for the start of summer.

The sandwich chain couldn’t ignore the outpouring of support any longer.

And Subway brought back one fan favorite that will leave your mouth watering.

Subway brings back its foot-long cookie to the menu

Fast food fanatics who want a sweet treat at Subway have long been limited to one of the chain’s conventional-sized cookies.

Someone looking for a massive desert was out of luck.

That’s why Subway debuted its Footlong Cookie for a limited time during National Cookie Day in 2022.

The warm and gooey Footlong Cookies came hot out of the oven and replicated a homemade chocolate chip cookie. 

Many Subway locations ran out of the massive cookie because of overwhelming demand.

The Footlong Cookie returned for 2023’s National Cookie Day for another successful limited-time run.

Subway brought the fan-favorite cookie back this January but sold out of them in two weeks because of the incredible demand.

The chain had to remove the Footlong Cookie from the Subway app and third-party delivery services to manage demand.

Subway reported that they sold more than 3.5 million Sidekick snacks – which include a Cinnabon Footlong Churro and Auntie Anne’s Footlong Pretzel – in a little over two weeks after the Footlong Cookies reappeared on menus.

“Sidekicks are a big hit with guests and the latest proof that Subway is a remarkably different brand than it was when we began our transformation journey three years ago — and we’re not slowing down,” Subway CEO John Chidsey said in a statement.

Now, Subway is bringing the Footlong Cookie back to its menu, and this time they’ve been sure to increase each location’s supply in order to meet the massive demand from its customers.

And the cookie will be available on the Subway app and through third-party delivery services.

One of the best-selling launches in the chain’s history

Subway said they had sold more than five million Footlong Cookies since it was added to the menu.

“The Footlong Cookie has delighted millions of Americans since their first bites in January, sparking unprecedented demand over the last several months,” Subway Paul Fabre, Senior Vice President of Culinary and Innovation, said in a press release. “Subway worked diligently to rush additional Footlong Cookie supply to satisfy cookie cravings at a great value and serve up a footlong dose of happiness this summer.”

Since 2021, Subway has undergone a major update to its menu and worked to make major operational improvements with its Eat Fresh Refresh campaign.

The initiative came in light of the fact that several competitors, like Jimmy John’s and Jersey Mike’s, had begun cutting into Subway’s share of the sub sandwich market.

Subway began slicing its sandwich meats fresh in stores after the chain had previously shipped in pre-sliced meats to its locations.

The Subway Sidekick additions to the menu were part of an attempt to get customers to come in who were looking for a snack.

Subway North America President Doug Fry told TODAY.com that the Sidekick menu was aimed at customers who want “other reasons to visit outside traditional mealtimes.”

Now, Subway fans will be able to enjoy a delicious Footlong Cookie this summer.
