Subway's Most Ordered Sandwich Of 2022 Was The All-American Club

Subway did a major menu revamp back in July 2021, and it was nothing like anything they had ever done before. The need for the major overhaul became necessary because according to what Subway's CEO John Chidsey suggested during his interview with QSR Magazine, the company needed a new direction. Statista reported that it was the most successful sandwich chain in America in 2021, but the number of stores has been in a decline with each passing year. There were 26,744 Subway outlets in 2016, but as of 2022, 20,845 are operational in the country, ScrapeHero reports.

The new "Eat Fresh Refresh" menu featured new sauces, bread, and proteins. In 2021, the company introduced the "Subway Series" featuring 12 signature sandwiches with one goal: to streamline the ordering process by eliminating the need to choose the ingredients. The company curated every variety. It's been a while since the launch, and as the year comes to an end, Subway has released a "Subway Unwrapped" ranking of the best-selling Subway Series sandwiches.

Subway ranked its Subway Series bestsellers for 2022

Subway Series features four lineups: cheesesteaks, Italianos, chicken, and clubs. Some were divided over the new menu at first, but it seems like many people enjoyed it. "I think the menu turned out much better than I thought it would, and it actually gets customers to get add-ons that most people don't bother with (like the double cheese on the cheesesteaks), so that's a plus," Redditor @Mirrororor, who works at a Subway, opined.

According to the company's Instagram post, the All-American Club was the best-selling Subway Series sandwich with a 24.7% order rate in 2022. The Subway Club ranked second at 21.4% and the Supreme Meats ranked third at 12.3%. According to Subway's website, an All-American Club consists of oven-roasted turkey breast, hickory-smoked bacon, Black Forest ham, tomato, red onion, lettuce, mayo, Italian bread, and American cheese. It clocks in at 450 calories for a 6-inch sub and 900 for a normal footlong. A Footlong Pro is filled with twice the meat and provides 1350 calories.

As for its taste, YouTuber Johnny Clyde declared that the sub was "knocking it out of the park," praising Subway's new bacon and oven-roasted turkey as tastier than the previous versions. He described dipping the sandwich in the chain's parmesan sauce as a "game-changer." YouTuber JKMCraveTV ordered a footlong with extra meat and replaced the bacon with roast beef. He gave the sub a solid nine out of 10 and enjoyed how meaty it was.
