As most of you probably know Subway is switching to Coke products. And The ones here in my part of Pennsylvania now have Mello Yello. So do you think this will be a national thing? I hope. ;)

Subway's choice on soda fountains depends on the franchisee, rather than on a national level. (i.e., I own Subway x, someone else owns Subway y and Subway z. I put Coke in Subway x cos I love it, but it is more costly. Subway y and Subway z have Pepsi for monetary reasons).

At least I think that's the deal.

Mellow Yellow and Coke products at my Subway in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Yay!

That's the way it used to be, but Coke signed an exclusive deal with corporate Subway, and all the franchisees have to switch over by a certain time. The same thing happened with Wendy's a few years back.

Part of the Coke/Subway deal was that Coke paid for a "toaster" and the electrician to wire and install the outlet for it, so Subway could launch a new line of toasted subs (they are mediocre, at best). In response, Quiznos switched to Pepsi, because they didn't want to play second fiddle.

The Quiznos around me have switched. They have a Pepsi fountain, and Sobe, Pepsi CSD 20oz, Lipton 16oz, and Aquafina in the cold case. No more Coke, Dasani and Snapple.

Does this mean that the toasters, as well as the Coke machines come synonymously?

Some here still have Pepsi. I don't eat at Subway, but I've been tempted to try their toasted subs. Up here, I can either get them from Sheetz, local places, or even Martin's. Subway's just blech, and we're not cool enough for a Quizno's.

The Quizno's here in south Texas still carry Coke products. Even if they do eventually switch though they will still carry Dr Pepper, which is all I care about.

They don't come synonymously. A separate company delivers the toasters, even though Coke paid for them. The local bottler delivers and installs the fountain and any additional cold drink equipment -- most locations have a single door cooler or a double door cooler.

A franchise in VA still has Pepsi for Wendy's. Around Harrisonburg. Otherwise they're all Coke here, AFAIK. I don't eat at Wendy's much, I prefer BK and McDonald's to them.

Subways have one optional flavor on their fountain and most stores are tapping on Dr Pepper.If i were an owner thats what i would do.

I still like Sheetz over Subway and Quizno's. There you can get either Coke, Pepsi, or whatever you want; there is no single representation. Plus their macaroni and cheese is the best.

E-dude plug... Drink Sum Poosie. It's the best. Free porno picture with every bottle!!!

Sheetz even has two restaurants. In Altoona and Raleigh.

The Sheetz restaurant is weird. I've seen the Altoona one. Looks like a regular Sheetz, except it has seating inside, and a drive-thru.

I'd argue you don't have choice. Unless you go and buy their horrifically priced 20 oz. (raised to $1.25 for Pepsi, $1.29 for Coke and 7-Up here), you have only Pepsi products on fountain except for Coke and Diet Coke (which was very recent). Plus, Hank's is gone (meaning you can't buy it here anymore). Just $1.19 Jones (was .99 a few weeks ago).

McDonald's is supposedly nationally Coke, but I went to a McDonald's once and they were serving Pepsi (it was in like a food court). I was absolutely shocked!!

the mcdonalds at comerica park in detroit, where the tigers play, serves pepsi. sometimes the rules out weigh their contracts.

Similarly, the combo Pizza Hut/Target food court thingy in the Target store in Abingdon, Maryland serves Coke.
