From the article-"And then, Subway began selling footlong subs for $5. Quiznos made the mistake of trying to compete by discounting.
Maybe the most famous came in 2009, when the company sent out a coupon for a free sandwich, and franchisees, angry at the discounts and low profits, revolted and refused to accept the coupons."

Sound familiar? Excessive discounting? Free food (GMA)?? IF we had a REAL franchisee organization, maybe we could stop this!
