Listen Up! Subway® Debuts Largest Menu Update in Brand’s History articles, photo

July 7, 2021,

They say that “perfection” is a word found only in the dictionary. We do wonder?

Did the person who said that ever eat a Subway sandwich?

Subway is an American fast food restaurant franchise that primarily sells submarine sandwiches (subs), salads and beverages.

Get this, it was founded by the 17 year old Fred DeLuca and financed by Peter Buck in 1965 as Pete’s Super Submarines in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The restaurant was renamed Subway two years later, and a franchise operation began in 1974 with a second restaurant in Wallingford, Connecticut. It has since expanded to become a global franchise.

It is the fastest-growing franchise in the world and, as of June 2021, had 37,540 locations in more than 100 countries and territories. More than half its locations (21,796 or 58.1%) are in the United States

We have eaten plenty of Subway sandwiches and while we won’t proclaim publicly that they are perfect (privately we do), we feel that they are pretty darn close.

Talk about a feel good story. articles,

And now there is big news. Really huge news.

Something that is close to perfect is about to edge closer to perfection.

Here is the huge news coming from Subway.

It is historic.
