Subway offering lifetime of free subs to anyone who changes their name

Subway offering lifetime of free subs to anyone who changes their name

An endless supply of sandwiches sounds pretty tempting

A lifetime supply of sandwiches is pretty tempting offer, if you're willing to part ways with your name forever.

Subway is set to make history by offering a brave customer a chance to get an endless subway of Subway Deli Heroes for the rest of their life as long as they’re willing to make a huge change.

Forget becoming known as an 'idiot sandwich' like Julie Chen thanks to Gordon Ramsey, you can become 'Subway', which is a lot more appetising to the ears.

If you want free subs for the rest of life then legally change your first name to 'Subway' and the offer is yours.

The popular sandwich chain is on the hunt for its biggest and most dedicated fan, which should come as a great reward if you’re sick of your name anyway and free food is usually a great incentive to do something.

The odd competition comes only a few weeks after the food chain introduced automatic slicers and fresh-sliced deli meat to 20,000 of its restaurants.

The sandwich chain announced the news on 5 July by revealing it would be giving away one million free subs on 11 July as part of a huge promotional campaign. Subway said it wanted to put ‘its new slices to the test’.

Meanwhile, the introduction of freshly sliced meats - which was also announced on 5 July - was heralded as another huge overhaul to its offerings.

“Over the past two years, we overhauled our expansive pantry of ingredients and debuted a whole new way to Subway with chef-crafted signature sandwiches. These major changes led to rave reviews from our guests and record-breaking sales,” said Trevor Haynes, Subway’s North American president, in a press release.

“The addition of freshly sliced meats is the most impactful yet as it gives our guests a better sandwich - raising the bar even higher for the brand that defined fresh. We can’t wait for America to taste the difference and see how far we have come on our journey.”

The Deli Heroes include: Titan Turkey, Grand Slam Ham, Garlic Roast Beef and The Beast.

So now in another promotional campaign to drum up publicity for the brand, Subway has launched the name-changing contest.

If you’re up for the challenge, the contest will only last for three days so you better get ready to make room for lots of sandwiches and a your new moniker if you plan on taking part.

The nationwide contest will run between 1 August and 4 August, 2023 and will be hosted on

During the three days, Subway fanatics will be asked to commit to legally changing their name to enter the contest for the chance of all the subs you’ve ever dreamed of.

“Subway will select one lucky winner to earn free sandwiches and assume an iconic new identity,” the press release explains.

Participants must be a legal resident of the United States and be at least 18 years old (19+ in Alabama and Nebraska, and 21+ in Mississippi).

Subway will reimburse the winner for the legal and processing fees when they change their name.

We can't wait to meet the new 'Subway'.
