About

Become Part of a Winning Team with the #1 Franchise.

More than 44,800 locations throughout the world!

Fred DeLuca and Dr. Peter Buck opened the first SUBWAY® restaurant in the city of Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA, in the summer of 1965. They later incorporated in the name of Doctor’s Associates Inc. The SUBWAY® chain is the largest restaurant chain in the world with more locations than any other restaurant.

Each SUBWAY® location is focused on making great sandwiches. In fact, it is so great, that many SUBWAY® customers have become franchise owners simply because they believe in the product.

Exceptional growth

Since its founding the SUBWAY® franchise system has experienced phenomenal growth, and has become the #1 Quick Service Restaurant chain in the world. In most years, about 70% of new franchises are purchases by existing owners.

Subway provides:

  • Access to formulas and operational systems
  • Store design and equipment ordering guidance
  • Site selection
  • Training program
  • Operations manual
  • Field support - representative on-site during opening
  • Periodic evaluations and ongoing support
  • Research and Development on menu
  • Informative publications
  • Continuing education

Training and Support

Before you open your Subway, you and your designee or manager will participate in a 2-week intensive training program.

Franchise World Headquarters, LLC is proud of the excellent support systems available to SUBWAY® franchisees. Ongoing support is provided before and after you open your store. As soon as you join the SUBWAY® team, you’ll have access to help to get you started. Once open, systems are in place to help you operate your location effectively.

Franchise Options

The SUBWAY® franchise has some of the lowest start-up costs in the industry. Your complete investment will depend on your location, size, and the extent of renovations required. There are traditional and nontraditional locations for SUBWAY® franchises.

  1. A traditional restaurant is one you see in a shopping center or on the street corner.

  2. A non-traditional restaurant is a store located in an airport, hospital, truck stop, college, bus terminal, or other sites associated with another business. The non-traditional locations are usually owned by existing franchisees that have proven to be very successful with the SUBWAY® system. If you own a location such as a convenience store, or any non-traditional site, you may have the opportunity to buy a franchise for that location.

Committed to Franchisees and the Environment

The SUBWAY® brand is committed to making SUBWAY® restaurants and operations as environmentally and socially responsible as possible. The brand strives to conduct business in a way that creates profit for franchisees while minimizing the impact the business has on the environment and improving the lives of SUBWAY® customers, employees, franchisees, vendors and communities world-wide.

Subway Franchise Feedback

"After working in the Subway system for seven years as an employee, first as a sandwich artist and eventually as a store manage, all while in college, I had the change to work as an Area Supervisor for a multi-unit owner. I witnessed firsthand how the Subway franchise is such a great opportunity. When I was offered the chance to buy five restaurants and become a multi-unit owner myself, it was a dream come true. The Subway system has been a very lucrative and exciting business to be a part of. It has made all my financial and personal goals a reality, while at the same time, I enjoy a quality lifestyle." - Brad Harris, Franchisee, Denver, CO. 6 franchises

"As an American, I grew up on Subway food and I was always a huge fan. I was looking for a business opportunity when I was living in Scotland and Subway was a great fit for my husband and me. We opened 3 restaurants in Scotland and we were very happy but we saw an opportunity to develop the Subway brand in France. Since my husband Eric is French, we decided to take it. We are responsible for development in Normandy and the Center North of France and now have 20 restaurants in our region. We are scheduled to open 5 more this year and we are proud to be part of the Subway family." - Allison and Eric LeFebvre, France, 20 restaurants
