Please allow for the briefest of rants. Maybe I’m just a little word stickler, but this is a dictionary definition of artisan: “a person or company that makes a high quality of distinctive product in small quantities, usually by hand or using traditional methods.”

Subway, Dunkin’ Donuts and the like, please take note of the rampant misuse of this word.
