Kosher "Subway" Restaurant??

CJN: This flagship fast food restaurant, the first and only kosher Subway restaurant in North America, will be located in the spacious, sunny living room area at the Jewish Community Center’s main entrance. Over the next few weeks, this central spot, which at one time housed an Arabica Coffee House, will be refurbished with a warm, Tuscany look.The meat and pareve (permissible to be eaten with either meat or dairy) menu will feature the traditional Subway fare, but every item served will be strictly kosher and under the supervision of Cleveland Kosher.Pareve cheese will be used, and beef fry will be substituted for pork products. The mashgiach (kastrut supervisor), partner, and co-operator is Avi Cohen, former owner of Brooklyn Bagels. All bread baked on the premises has the approval of the Orthodox Union. By adapting the menu to meet strict kosher standards, Subway diners will enjoy chicken Parmesan, meatball and steak subs and even a Subway hamburger melt. Soups, salads, wraps and desserts will also be on the bill of fare as well as a special children’s menu.“The menu will be finalized over the next few weeks, along with the pricing,” says JCC president Enid Rosenberg. Tentative hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. The cost of menu items will be about 10% to 15% more than traditional Subway fare, but management will honor all national coupons and promotions. There will be take-out service including party trays.“We have been looking for a kosher partner for our living room area for some time,” explains Rosenberg. “We are thrilled to have made contact with Ghazi J. Faddoul, the Subway development agent, who helped us bring this franchise to the JCC.”.............
