SUBWAY®By the Numbers

·SUBWAYÒPresident and Co-founder Fred DeLuca started the business with a $1,000 loan from a family friend, Dr. Peter Buck. His intention was to earn enough money from the sandwich business to pay for his college tuition.

·Worldwide,SUBWAYÒrestaurants serve more than 5,300 sandwiches every 60 seconds or 320,000 sandwiches an hour.

·There are more than 37 million possible sandwich combinations available on theSUBWAY®menu.

·In addition to traditionalSUBWAY®locations, there are more than 9,000 non-traditionalSUBWAY®restaurants (as of May 7, 2014) located in places such as airports, convenience stores, grocery stores, hospitals, amusement parks, zoos, school cafeterias, and many other types of locations – there are even Subway restaurants in Laundromats, and automobile dealership.

·If you place all of the sandwiches made bySUBWAYÒrestaurants in a year, end to end, they would wrap around the Earth 14 times.

·If placed end to end, all the cucumbers thatSUBWAY®restaurants serve in a year would stretch a distance of 5,600 miles.

·If all the peppers used annually bySUBWAY®restaurants worldwide were placed end to end they would span the length of the Nile River- twice!

·The originalSUBWAYÒsandwiches did not include lettuce. Today, theSUBWAYÒchain uses approximately 16 acres of lettuce a day! That’s the equivalent to more than 35 football fields of lettuce.

·If you take all of the cheese that is produced forSUBWAYÒrestaurants in a year and place each slice end to end, they will reach half way to the moon and would cover more than 600 thousand official size hockey rinks.

·If walking single file, all of the cows needed to produce enough milk to make the cheese forSUBWAYÒrestaurants would create a line that was more than 50 miles long.

·The manufacturing ofSUBWAYÒcookies requires the services of 46,602 busy hens working around the clock. The average hen lays an egg once every 26 hours, or 309 eggs per year and it takes 14.4 million eggs to net the required 1.6 million pounds of eggs needed to make enough dough for a year’s worth ofSUBWAYÒcookies.

·TheSUBWAY®chain uses more than 300 million heads of lettuce per year--enough to stretch 29 thousand miles.

The first SUBWAY® restaurant outside of the U.S. opened in the Middle Eastern nation of Bahrain in 1984. In accordance with local customs, the food at SUBWAY® restaurants in the region is Halal. Pork products are not served and items such as ham and bacon are substituted by similar offerings made from lamb, chicken or turkey.
