Sewickley residents and business owners have speculated about plans for the former Quizno's restaurant.
A major fast-food restaurant is slated to open in March at the former Quizno's space in Sewickley. The borough code enforcement office and the Subway website both confirm plans for a new Subway restaurant opening soon at 537 Beaver St. between the Verizon store and Craig Allen Salon. A building permit was issued last month for interior renovations at the property owned by Clifford Krey, who could not be reached for comment. Subway, a franchise chain, has more than 38,800 restaurants worldwide and is known for its "eat fresh" motto, Fresh Fit menu and $5 footlongs.

Two men are suing Subway because they say the footlong sandwiches measure less than 12 inches.
If you're headed to Subway bring your appetite—and your ruler. That's if you pay as close attention to the size of your sandwich as two New Jersey men, who are suing the fast food chain because they say the advertised footlong sub is just shy of 12 inches. According to NBC 10, the lawsuit was filed last week. The plantiffs, John Farley of Evesham and Charles Noah Pendrack of Ocean City, said they measured 17 Subway foot-long sandwiches and all were not quite 12 inches.

The incident happened on Route 65 at the Quaker Valley Shopping Center entrance, near the Edgeworth border.
Northbound traffic on Route 65 was rerouted this morning from the Quaker Village Shopping Center entrance in Leetsdale after an unknown vehicle, possibly a train, brought down live wires, borough police reported. Leetsdale police said authorities weren't sure if a tractor-trailer pulled down low-hanging wires before a Norfolk Southern train struck them. The downed wires fell across 65 and the train tracks, taking out the Subway restaurant sign at Village Drive in the process. "We can't confirm whether it was a train or a truck that knocked them down," said Leetsdale police Sgt. Dan Raible. Police redirected traffic for about 45 minutes until a Duquesne Light Co. crew could clear the wires from 65. None of the wires were sparking or arcing…

The sandwich chain says it's one-upping its own deal with six-inch sandwiches for just two bucks all month.
Wednesday, December 7, 2011
And you thought $5 was a steal for a Subway sandwich. The national chain announced that it will offer cold-cut and meatball six-inch subs for just $2 in December, throughout the end of the year, according to the website. Other major food chains have set the trend of offering two-buck menu items, including Taco Bell and Chipotle, but this is the first sandwich joint to enter the playing field. Subway had previously set a new price point for many of its sandwiches, offering them for $5. But they've cut that by more than half in a traditionally slow month for fast food sales. There are plenty of Subway shops to choose from in the area, including Leetsdale, Moon, Wexford and Ross.
