Subway to Open 1,200 Units in North America

With more than 2,000 franchisees actively searching for locations, the SUBWAY sandwich chain has aggressive growth plans for 2012.

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, the SUBWAY franchise system is the world’s largest restaurant chain, in terms of number of locations. In order to reach the company’s development goals, a contingent of SUBWAY representatives will be manning the SUBWAY booth in South Hall 3 & 4, S2600 N Street and 28th Avenue at the ICSC RECon convention, May 21-23, in Las Vegas.

“To continue to provide career opportunities to entrepreneurs and offer our world famous submarine sandwiches, which includes a wide range of healthier meal options, to an ever increasing consumer base, more than 100 Subway developers, field staff, and leasing specialists from all across North America will be attending the event,” says Chris Kan, training and business promotion specialist for Subway Real Estate, LLC. “We will be looking for sites and ready to make deals.”

The SUBWAY chain is growing and continues to forge ahead with new opportunities in traditional shopping centers, malls, and free standing locations as well as non-traditional venues such as hospitals, colleges, sports arenas, and airports.

Since this past January, the SUBWAY chain has opened nearly 900 new stores in 58 countries, 42 U.S. states, and seven Canadian provinces, which equates to more than one million square feet of prime commercial retail space. In total, SUBWAY franchisees lease more than 43 million square feet of property around the globe.

Most recently, the SUBWAY chain reached the milestones of 25,000 U.S. locations and restaurants open in 100 countries.

To illustrate how flexible the SUBWAY concept is, unique locations include an automobile assembly plant in Ohio; a new car showroom, and a brewery in California; a church in upstate New York; a combination laundry and tanning salon in Wisconsin; several high schools in Virginia; and a floating restaurant aboard a river boat in Germany.

  • Recruitment coaches help you think outside of your comfort zone.

    I was contacted by Joe about the job opportunity and at first I was against it. I was searching for something that was outside of my comfort zone and outside of the food industry. While talking with Joe he was so enthusiastic about the company that I said sure let’s give it a try. Joe was with me every single step of the way. From initial contact to me actually being hired he was there. He called/ texted me the day of my interview and encouraged me along the way. I was surprised and happy for his involvement to help me. I could always count on him for great advise and tips during the process. He shared my excitement each time I was contacted by the new company and followed my journey. He was always professional and was easily contacted when I had butterflies about me making the changes. I recommend Joe to any job seekers out there. He went above and beyond!

  • Recruitment Coaches are Your Coach for Life!

    All I can say about Mike is he has always been supportive and a great mentor to me over the past 8 years.  First as my Director of Operations with Mimi’s Café he always challenged me to be a better manager and encouraged my growth by having me take on leading weekly kitchen manager calls for his market and trusting me to go into troubled locations and helping to turn them around.  Most recently when my time with Mimi’s was over Mike was able to help me secure the next step in my journey in less than 3 weeks.

    Sincerely,

    Bob Nawa

    I was extremely impressed with Sharon's attention to detail and to make me feel comfortable.  She was in my corner the whole time.  I think it is really great that she actually eats at the restaurants that I will be managing so that is encouraging because that means they have a great working relationship!  I felt that she knew exactly how to prepare me for the interview and the resume that was created was very impressive!
