The Freedom Tower Gets A Subway

Eat fresh, I guess:
A sandwich shop was hoisted into place atop the Ground Zero construction site Tuesday and it should be up and running by late January.

When it's fully staffed, it will cater to ironworkers building the Freedom Tower so they don't have to spend their entire 30-minute break traveling up and down the huge structure to get food.

Right now, it's only five stories in the sky, welded onto a platform with a harness for extra safety. As the building goes higher, so will Subway and its signature $5 subs.

"It will be the same price as the street, and really what you're going to see is a fully functioning Subway store potentially 105 stories in the sky," said Joe Allegretti, Subway's regional development office manager.
I wonder how Subway got the contract...
