Your favorite "five dollar foot-long" may no longer be available at Subway.

Subway CEO Trevor Haynes says starting this month, each franchisee will be allowed to decide whether to sell the sub.

Customers may have loved the deal, but when the chain brought back the $5 Foot-long last winter, many franchisees were irate saying they lost money on the sandwich.

Other changes coming to Subway include regional sandwich specials, more exotic flavors, new beverages such as Watermelon Agua Fresca and Passion Fruit Agua Fresca, regional flavors and alternative breads.

The 53-year-old privately-held company had $16.8 billion in global sales in 2017, thanks to some 44,000 restaurants worldwide.​
