But when @BryMillan62 said: "Subway have been s***e for years. Better with a @GreggsOfficial [Greggs], Subway came back fighting, replying with the zinger: "So much for loyalty. Did you do the same thing when Hearts was relegated to the second division, switch from club?"

Subway is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the world and, as of October 2019, had 41,512 locations in more than 100 countries
