Co-founded by Fred DeLuca from Bridgeport Connecticut and Dr. Peter Buck, it was first called “Pete’s Super Submarines” but was renamed “Subway” two years later.
Subway serves 96 million Subs per year, that’s 184 Subs every minute in the UK and Ireland.
The Italian B.M.T. Sub is the most popular in the UK, selling on average 37,335 per day, with the Meatball Marinara the most talked about sandwich globally on social media.
If you were to lay all Meatball Marinara Subs sold by Subway in 2020 end to end, you would reach Lands End to John O’Groats 6.7 times.
To this day, Subway stores continue to be found in unexpected places. In Germany, there is one on a boat that sails on the Rhine River, while in Cleveland, USA, there is a store within a church.
Mays Elansari, Head of Marketing UK & Ireland at Subway commented “As the UK’s largest sandwich shop, Subway’s iconic Footlongs have proven to be a firm lunchtime favourite over the last 25 years.
