    No Pepsi, only Coke at Subway stores
    Sandwich giant says it has completed switch at U.S. restaurants

    NEW YORK - Subway, the world’s largest sandwich chain, said Wednesday it has completed the conversion of its North American restaurants to sell beverages from Coca-Cola Co. instead of PepsiCo. Inc.

    More than 23,000 Subway restaurants worldwide will offer a range of Coke products, the privately held company said. The 10-year deal is valued at $2 billion.

    PepsiCo, the No. 2 soft drink company behind Coke, was the lead beverage supplier to privately held Milford, Conn.-based Subway for more than three decades, although Coca-Cola supplied about 15 percent of the restaurants.

    The completion of this deal comes at a time of intense competition between Coca-Cola and Pepsi, which are battling for the allegiance of increasingly picky U.S. consumers.

    After reports of Subway’s planned switch to Coke in 2003, Quiznos Sub, the third-largest U.S. sandwich chain, signed a deal in August 2004 to serve PepsiCo drinks in its U.S. outlets, ending a 23-year relationship with Coke.

    The United States is the largest market for the soft-drink giants.

    “Now that the conversion is complete, we are looking forward to working with the Coca-Cola team to reduce costs and drive increased franchisee sales and profit through a number of defined initiatives,” Dennis Clabby, vice president of Subway franchisee-owned cooperative, Independent Purchasing Cooperative, said in the release.

          Pepsi is for stupid people.
          . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

                            Both Pepsi and Coke suck.

                            Drink tea or water...
