$6 Meal Deal

Subway's new $6 deal includes drink, chips

Fast-food's magic price point — widely regarded as $5 — may be about to jump to $6.

Subway, which created the $5 Footlong deal as a way to entice customers during the heart of the recession, on Saturday will nationally roll out a new value meal twist. This one, dubbed Simple $6 Menu, features six of its core sandwiches that will be sold in 6 inch versions along with a 21 ounce fountain drink and bag of chips for $6.

The subs in the deal:

  • Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki
  • Italian BMT
  • Turkey Breast
  • Tuna
  • Black Forest Ham
  • Meatball Marinara 

All of these rank among the chain's 10 best-selling sandwiches, says Pace. The Simple $6 Menu will be available in Subway's 26,908 U.S. locations.

The action comes at a time that competitive value deals across the fast food industry have snipped away business from Subway. While the move does not replace future $5 Footlong deals at Subway, it does add a second level of value offerings to a chain eager to attract Millennial customers who demand value.

Chicken Enchilada Melt

Subway Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

1 envelope taco seasoning
5-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (16 oz.) jar of salsa
4 hoagie rolls, sliced horizontally in half
8 slices American cheese
1 bag shredded iceberg lettuce
2 tomatoes, sliced
Salsa Ranch Salad Dressing (combine equal parts of Ranch dressing and salsa)
pickles, olives, bell peppers, onions, or other toppings of your choice (optional)

Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker, pour salsa over top, and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours, or on low for 6 to 8 hours. When chicken is finished cooking, shred with a fork before serving.

To prepare the Melts, top bottom half of hoagie rolls with shredded chicken. Place cheese slices on top and broil in oven until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. Top toasted sandwiches with lettuce, tomato, Salsa Ranch dressing, and additional toppings of your choice. Serve immediately.

Notes: Any leftover meat can be frozen and used for a later meal.
