Let's see who won the 2012 Sub Jammers Competiton

One hundred and forty-six of the fastest Sandwich Artists® from eight countries took part in the exciting 2012 Sub Jammers Competition last month at the Subway® Convention in Orlando, FL.  With music blasting and a huge crowd cheering them on, these blazing fast sandwich slingers competed to see who could make a FOOTLONG™ Turkey sub the fastest. The subs were then judged for speed and accuracy of the build

The top three finishers were:

1st Place – Salvador Rodriguez (Florence, AZ) won $3,000 with an adjusted time of 51.15 seconds (see All-Star profile below).
2nd Place – Bryon Shea (Neenah, WI) won $2,000 with an adjusted time of 51.6 seconds.
3rd Place – Jenni Chapman (Galesville, WI) won $1,000 with an adjusted time of 52.1 seconds.

The Sub Jammers Competition highlights the importance of speed and accuracy when making a delicious Subway® sandwich. Ask your Manager or restaurant owner if there are Sub Jammer Competitions held in your area.
