Yes, just a scant 10 minutes ago I yielded on Frederick Blvd. so Jarod of Subway could cross the street to begin the grand re-opening of a fine Subway store.
Before anyone lands on the franchisee for corporate sins, I'd like to point out the local owner just invested at least 100K in a rundown area on the edge of the downtown to fix this puppy up. It now looks so much nicer and we now have a nice place to eat nearby. The Subway was redecorated in a Tuscan style, where is sits on the edge of the former Grand Italiante section of town. While it won't bring the old neighborhood back by itself, it was tastefully done for a franchise and may spur some reinvestment in the area. I give kudos to the owner.
It is also slated to be the scene of upcoming Subway commercials and there are rumors that is could be a corporate style type used in the future on other stores. They promised to use Jarod and not the smarmy dude.
PS. He is a tall man, that Jarod of Subway.
PPS What if there were Jarod doubles like Saddam had?
