Did Subway Know That Jared Fogle Was A Child Predator Back In 2008?
She says however when she told execs about his disturbing behavior she was completely ignored.
A former Subway franchisee claims she warned Subway about Jared Fogle’s sexual interest in children seven years ago and that the sandwich chain did nothing.
Cindy Mills says that Fogle, Subway’s pitchman for 15 years, started calling her daily and making disturbing comments in early 2008, shortly after they had met at a Subway function.
“He would just tell me he really liked them young,” Mills told Business Insider.
Mills was a Subway franchisee from 2006 to 2012 in Pensacola, Florida.
Mills says Fogle admitted to her that he’d had sex with minors, telling her about trysts with child prostitutes between the ages of 9 and 16 years old in Thailand and the US.
Mills previously told Business Insider that Fogle allegedly tried to get her to sell herself for sex on Craigslist.
Mills says she shared this information with Subway in 2008 but that the company ignored her complaints. That’s when she decided to hire a lawyer.
The company said Wednesday that it is investigating whether executives were aware of Fogle’s interest in children.
Mills says that when she contacted Subway about Fogle’s behavior in 2008, the company directed her to Jeff Moody, then CEO of SFAFT.
Mills says that she spoke to Moody on the phone and told him about Fogle’s disturbing comments about children.
Mills says Moody cut her off in the middle of the conversation, saying, “Please don’t tell me any more.”
He indicated that he had dealt with similar complaints in the past, according to Mills.
“He said, ‘Don’t worry, he has met someone. She is a teacher and he seems to love her very much, and we think she will help keep him grounded,'” Mills recalls.
Moody, now CEO of Rita’s Italian Ice, did not respond to requests for comment.
