Subway beats the famous McDonalds off the top of the fast food sellers
McDonalds have been knocked off its perch at the top of the fast food sellers, by Subway who now has more restaurants around the world. At the end of last year McDonalds had 33,737 food outlets but Subway had 33,749.
The sandwich chain outlets include bowling alleys, one in Germany on a riverboat and one in Buffalo USA, there’s even one in a church. Recently they opened their first restaurant in Vietnam.
In Britain, Subway is a feature in the High Street and has more than 1,500 outlets throughout the country, where McDonalds only have 1,197. The success of Subway is down to it being willing to open restaurants in unusual places and keeping late opening hours. Experts say that the restaurants are basically turning into kebab shops for drunken pub goers.
McDonalds ‘Big Mac’ contains 30g of fat, but Subway can boost a range of made – to – order 6″ filled rolls which contain as much as five times less. Subway was founded in 1965 by an American teenage entrepreneur, Fred DeLuca, with just $1000. The first outlet was in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The launch of the first British outlet was in 1996 in Brighton.
I’ve got to admit that Subway is much nicer than McDonald. However, I’d still go into McDonalds.
