Can't go wrong with Subway December deal

Global restaurant king Subway is offering one fine deal for December: a six-inch meatball or cold-cut sub for $2.

Nearly nine months after boasting its worldwide presence trumps that of McDonald's ( MCD ), the Milford, Connecticut -based company's promotion occurs during the fast-food industry's slowest month, USA Today reports . This deal is so economically efficient that capitalizing on it twice during one lunch break STILL is cheaper than forking over $5 for a foot-long sub, which the company standardized.

Should the consumer take advantage of this deal, he'd also have to help himself to a two-hour lunch break for the sake of making the experience all the more enjoyable.

Additional major fast food restaurants offering $2 meal deals include Taco Bell, Chipotle ( CMG ) and some Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises.

When the ubiquitous sub shop pulled ahead of the world presence of McDonald's in early March, a company spokesman expressed an interest in opening as many as 2,000 new restaurants per year.

All 35,000-plus Subways in 99 countries around the world are franchisees, according to the Memphis Business Journal.
