Sales of Subway restaurants in the U.S. 2015-2018

Sales of Subway restaurants in the United States from 2015 to 2018 (in billion U.S. dollars)

by S. Lock, last edited Aug 14, 2019
Sales of Subway restaurants in the U.S. 2015-2018 Global quick service restaurant (QSR) Subway generated around 10.41 billion U.S. dollars in sales in 2018 in the United States, a decrease of half a billion from the previous year.  
 Leading the way

Subway is the leading sandwich chain in the U.S., its systemwide sales being more than three times that of its closest competitor Arby’s. The second largest sandwich chain, Arby’s, accounted for sales that amounted to approximately 3.89 billion U.S. dollars in 2018. Subway isn't just a giant among sandwich shops - it also accounted for some of the highest sales in the whole QSR industry ranking amongst big players such as Starbucks and Burger King. Unsurprisingly, the king of quick service, McDonald’s placed first on the list with U.S. systemwide sales of over 38 and a half billion U.S. dollars in 2018.    

 Units decline 

Along with a decline in U.S. sales comes a decrease in the number of Subway stores in the United States over the past two years. While Subway had approximately 27 thousand stores in the U.S. in 2015 the figure scraped to just about 24.8 thousand in 2018.
