Mr. Sub, Where Art Thou?

Mr. Sub, Where Art Thou?

Anyone who knows me is aware that my culinary tastes are the opposite of refined. I blame my small town upbringing, but take no shame in it. I like cheap, fast food that any Nowhere, Ontario town would have in abundance. One of my favourite Toronto options in this regard is Mr. Sub. A rare Canadian food chain, my regular presence there is one of the few ways I get out my patriotism. I ate it at least a few times a week throughout my undergrad – specifically at the location at Bloor & Bedford. And its also a TIFF tradition – with two locations (Bay & Yorkville, Yonge & Bloor) near the iW TIFF office and most theatres. But somethings going down. All three of those aforementioned locations are now holes in the ground awaiting an ugly condo to fill its place. Are the owners of the franchise simply easy to buy? Or are Mr. Sub’s on the outs all together? OR is their a conspiracy regarding the real estate community in Toronto and their relationship with Mr. Sub’s arch nemesis, the American (and less tasty) Subway?
