Prescott Lovern, Sr. (Lovern) has caught Wendy’s & Subway duping customers with their advertising. Both companies run corporate TV ads and respective website promotions that offer special pricing on respective food products.
The TV Ads have unreadable fine print that says [paraphrase] participating restaurants and price varies. What they don’t tell the consumer is that their respective franchisees are NOT required to honor advertising from corporate. More importantly not disclosed is that roughly 100% of all Subway locations are franchises. And, roughly 99.5% of all Wendy’s are franchises.
Corporate drives consumers to their restaurants and many times the consumer finds out that $4.99 Footlong, or, 4 for $4, is not available. Two options, leave, or buy more expensive food.
Stay tuned. More to come.
