Subway Knew About Jared Fogle’s Creepy Exploits but Did Nothing to Stop Them, Franchisee Says
More information has been uncovered in the wake of the Jared Fogle pedophilia scandal that puts the spotlight on Subway corporation as an enabler. A multi-store Subway franchisee claims that she warned corporate headquarters of Fogle’s disturbing claims of having sex with minors as early as 2006, but Subway did nothing in response.
Cindy Mills allegedly contacted headquarters repeatedly between 2006 and 2012. Under the guise of formulating a professional relationship with Fogle, Mills gathered incriminating evidence against the former Subway spokesperson over 15 years. "He would just tell me he really liked them young," Mills told Business Insider.
After Fogle told her about his sexual exploits with children as young as 9 in the U.S. and Thailand, Mills first reached out to a regional Subway contact in Florida, and then took her alarming anecdotes to other executives, but says her complaints went unanswered. When she spoke with Jeff Moody, who is in charge of the Subway franchisee advertising, he told her “not to worry” because Jared had “met someone” who would supposedly “keep him grounded.”
"I thought, 'This man has a lot of money. Subway has a lot money. They have made each other a lot of money,'" she told Business Insider. "I was worried. I was scared to death."
Subway has announced that it will be re-launching an internal investigation against Fogle to learn how much the company knew about his shocking behavior.
