Just getting word right now that the area of Duluth-Cloquet, Minnesota and Superior Wisconsin are the latest test market for gluten free sandwiches at Subway! I just talked with the store on Grand Avenue in Duluth and they confirmed they have been doing the test market since December 7th!
They want your feedback so they can keep it going!
Here’s what we know:
- Gluten free sandwiches are $1.00 more expensive than the others
- They are taking the safety precautions we’ve heard about in Texas and Oregon: clean gloves, bread is in a sealed wrapper and so is the knife.
- All ingredients are gluten free except meatballs and teriyaki chicken
- While we all with celiac are very worried about cross contamination, she said if you are “highly sensitive” please ask for the sandwich maker to take all new/fresh ingredients out from the back to make your sandwich. She says they are happy to do it and you shouldn’t think you are imposing. As the employee I talked to said,
“This is designed for you!”
So she says we must tell them what we need/want and then provide feedback! You can always ask about the safety protocols when you arrive at the store as well.
Right now at these stores, if you get a gluten free sandwich, you will get a survey on your receipt and by filling it out, you can get a $10 Subway card! They say they really want your feedback and your business so they can keep this gluten free option in the Duluth area! So Minnesotans– get up or over to Duluth (Cloquet, MN and Superior, WI) and try some gluten free Subway sandwiches!
I have my peeps in Duluth scoping it all out right now. I also have a call into Subway corporate….I will update this post when I hear from them.
