The Subway restaurant chain, which has more than 400,000 “sandwich artists” working with customers on a daily basis to make the perfect sandwiches and salads, has crowned Nitasha Truss from Tucson, Arizona, as the 2015 Subway Sub Jammers Champion.
Truss took home the championship after competing against a field of more than 100 sandwich artists from around the world at the brand's annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"This is definitely one of the most exciting parts of our annual convention," said Trevor Haynes, Global Director of Restaurant Operations for the brand. "The Sub Jammers competition is an outstanding way to honor the commitment and skills of our sandwich artists, who provide a positive dining experience every day for each customer that walks into their restaurants.
Truss, who won with a score of 46, has been with Subway restaurants for over eight years. She loves interacting with her customers each and every fast-paced day. This is her fourth time competing, second time finishing in first place, and third time finishing in the top two.
Jennifer Underwood from Spokane, Washington, took second place with a score of 47. She has been with Subway for 15 years. Underwood noted that she treats her customers like family and that it was "totally awesome" to finish in the top three. This is her fifth time competing and second top two finish, having won the competition in 2010.
Jenni Chapman from La Crosse, Wisconsin, took home third place with a score of 48. She has been with Subway restaurants for 17 years and loves making her customers' day, "one sandwich at a time, one smile at a time." This is Chapman's sixth year in a row competing, placing in the top ten a total of four times.
