sub style bread: where to buy

hey all,
looking for sub style breads like subway makes. i've looked in grocery stores but all i can find are baguettes or tim hortons style sanwich breads. looking for something thats softer and wider like subway has. i've tried asking them to sell me just the breads but they won't. any ideas?

Most of the higher end grocery stores carry sub style breads, stores like Dominions, Sobeys, Loblaws, and Costco should almost definitely carry them

when we make subs at home, we buy our bread from Highland Farms...they get them in daily from the Toronto Bread Co. (the factory is located on Progress rd. just off Kennedy in Scarborough)

didn't want to star a new thread, so I'll ask here. Can I buy sub bread that is more like what subway uses? I've tried the highland farm bread but I don't like it very much.....

Walk into your closest Quizno's or Mr. Sub and buy the bread from them

They'll only charge a few bucks

Isn't that the most expensive option? I don't need to exact same bread, but I mean the subway bread tastes better, but I think it's just because it is a lot softer and not as thick

you're not gonna find "sub bread" in a local A&P for less than 2 or 3 bucks and quizno's would charge at the MOST $4 (i think its $3.49 though) and the bread is way way better.

quizno's bread is pretty damn good if they actually toast it up nice, which you can spend the time on since your making it at home

Thats what I would do / have done at least..

If we want good-quality ingredients, you have to pay for them. You have to get off your wallet sometime.

Why don't you just buy a wide baguette or a batard, and slice it in half and use it? Such breads probably won't run you more than $2.00.

I'd rather spend $4 and get what I want, than spend $2 and not get what I want...

If you're really picky you could bake your own, I'm sure there are lots of recipes on this thing called internet, just find a bunch and experiment (Cut the recipes down to single loafs) until you find one you are happy with.
