Much more than 400 of the most significant businesses in the world—including Netflix, Spotify and Ikea—have reacted to mounting intercontinental strain to suspend or withdraw their small business from Russia since the invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
Some huge multinational chains, like McDonalds, Starbucks and Burger King, have temporarily halted operations there, sending a solid signal of their assist for Ukraine.
But not Subway.
With 446 franchised outlets across the nation, Subway is so much refusing to sever ties with Russia.
Customers throughout the world have not taken the company’s final decision well.
Phone calls to boycott Subway have been spreading like wildfire on social media, with Twitter users declaring their surprise at discovering the organization in the listing of corporations refusing to give up Russia.
“Never ever will I consume there once more!” tweeted @yankeemommy1.
“I have not been to a Subway for good, now I’ll in no way go again to a person!” echoed @Wenlindy.
Some are much more conflicted. “Oh, crap! Subway is just one of my preferred quick meals locations. Boycotting gets sophisticated often,” tweeted @physicsmom1.
Some consumers complained that a boycott would only damage local franchise owners already hit by sanctions, as an alternative of punishing the organization itself.
“Subway has no corporate functions in Russia,” reads a assertion from the enterprise.
