    im still confused by one aspect of it... the triangles don't appear to be isosceles... and if they are, i would recommend also adopting equilateral slices to reduce the number of pieces to form a tessellate plane on the sandwich as it would negate some of the time required to place the extra cheese slices in position.

    thats real good, and it's true... i eat subway like for breakfast and lunch on non school days.
    i know... it depends on the person making it though.

    ummm there is a thread somewhere else with this and someone on there posted that subway would lose like 5200 hours if they turned the cheese...dunno if that was day/week/year

    but point is they should turn the cheese =P

    so true lol

    This only applies for the american (and swiss?) cheese slices though. The provolone is semi-circle cut....*head explodes*

    that was http://www.xoohq.com/forums/showthread.php?p=53280#post53280

    and yes the 27% of patrons reduces the man hour loss.

    UPDATE: The local subway has, at least the last 3-4 times, done cheese:

    /\ \/ | \/ /\


    with the | is the 6" cut in the middle... Not sure if they are doing this against company policy, but its got some rotation and even some footlong symmetry going on

    no idea, but the provolone is rounded... also, i would like to point out again that the cheese slices aren't isosceles as said but equilateral as pictured

    I just went to a Subway and noticed a few things that make me call BS on this:
    1 - The stacks of the cheese slices are tessellated like the OP suggests. This means that in order to place the slices as Subway does, half of these slices must be turned around as they take all the cheese from the one stack at a time.
    2 - With 6 slices in a foot-long sub, 4 seconds per sandwich would mean that each slice takes 1.5 seconds to rotate, including the ones that we don't want rotated. But since we only want two of those slices rotated, that would mean that each slice takes 2 seconds to turn. Where did they find people that slow to do the tests ?
    3 - The person serving me nearly arranged the cheese without overlap. Then she corrected herself, meaning that she would of been faster with the no-overlap arrangement.

    most subways ive been to only do 4 slices per foot... perhaps they're trying a different method to avoid the overlap... or maybe 5 dollar footlong is get what you pay for?

    no, they just don't discount it cause it's not a "regular" footlong as they advertise...

    no the only diff between the steak and the chipotle southwest cheesesteak (from what the lady told me) was the sauce thats it, the meat has nothing else done to it
     
  18. Right, the sauce makes it one of their non $5 footlongs, meaning you will pay full price for everything on the sandwich. If you didn't get the sauce, they would have given you the discount.

    you should see if they'll sell you a cup of the southwest sauce on the side...


    and i still favor subway for the veggies they offer.

    I used to work at subway... Me, personally, I would put the cheese on like it was asked in the picture, because it makes the sandwitch that much more delicious. No need for scientific or mathimatical explanation. It simply did.
