Subway opens its 400th German restaurant via franchising
Two weeks ago, the Subway franchise chain opened up its 400th restaurant in Germany in the City of Bad Kreuznach, its 100th store since the beginning of the year. According to information in the press, the franchisee already owns a Subway branch in the city centre. Subway says that its franchise partners must invest around 120,000 euros in a new restaurant with the average turnover lying at between 35,000 and 40,000 euros a month. Just recently the system also opened up new restaurants at a hospital and at a motorway service station.
Subway’s target for Germany is to have set up approximately 1,500 restaurants across the country and so overtake the burger giants, McDonald's. Subway sells individually and freshly made sandwiches in front of their customers. The product range currently contains 20 different kinds of sandwiches. The bread is baked in the individual stores to ensure it is fresh.
The sandwich chain, which was founded by Fred DeLuca in the States in 1965, is currently active in more than 80 countries across the world. The United Kingdom and Germany are the system’s most important markets in Europe. Subway has a global workforce of around 250,000 people.
