Subway continues to expand its global presence, opening new outlets at Chicago O’Hare, Singapore Changi, Newark-Liberty, Fort McMurray and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airports in the last quarter of 2010.
The new additions mean that Subway, which opened its first airport outlet at Calgary International Airport in 1994, now has stores at 111 gateways across the world.
In total, Subway opened 500 new restaurants around the globe in the final quarter of 2010 to cement its status as the world’s second largest franchise in terms of locations (33,700 in nearly 100 countries).
In the non-traditional development category, the Subway chain has more than 7,700 locations in places such as airports, department stores, hospitals and park and recreational facilities.
"We are the number one chain in the world, and we always look for ways to deliver an exceptional experience to our customers each and every day," boasts Subway’s director of development, Don Fertman.
Minneapolis/St Paul, Las Vegas–McCarran, Washington Dulles and Luis Munoz Marin in Puerto Rico are among Subway’s top performing airport locations.
