Description of franchise system

Our extraordinary success story

Did you know that the story of subway started in 1965 with a boy trying to make some money for university..? Fred DeLuca was searching for a job this summer to earn the university tuition. During a conversation at a BBQ a friend of the family told Fred to open a sandwich shop because he had seen a very successful sandwich shop at his hometown.

To reach the next step a business plan was formulated that outlined the goals of the SUBWAY chain . To achieve those goals, the company started franchising, and gave other ambitious people the opportunity to develop their own business. Our very first franchise outlet opened its doors in 1974 in Connecticut. Today, SUBWAY is the largest fast-food chain specializing in sandwiches in the Ireland and the UK.

Since then, SUBAY has grown into a billion dollars business , with 31,775 outlets in 91 countries. And - we're looking for new franchisees that will help us to continue our success in the United Kingdom!

Franchise concept

How SUBWAY works

Our brand and franchise system is a worldwide leader in delivering strong support systems, great tasting food, simplicity of operations, and low operational costs. Our successful fast-food chain now offers profitable franchise opportunities that provide motivated individuals with all the knowledge and tools they need to build their own sustainably successful outlet.

Our franchisees operate as independent entrepreneurs with the right to run their store under our brand name and with our concept. 91% of all franchises are reporting constant profitability, based on a 2008 survey of the bfa/NatWest, which means that franchisees have much better chances to survive even during economically challenging times than entrepreneurs who act on their own.

There are currently SUBWAY franchising opportunities available all over Ireland and the UK. Our franchise package requires only a low, initial investment, and offers unparalleled support and simple operation to make SUBWAY an attractive opportunity for anyone who wants to become his or her own boss. Our franchisees operate in a proven system and receive comprehensive training plus solid support on all aspects of the business.
