As of February 2019, the United Kingdom has the highest number of Subway restaurants in Europe, reaching 2,443 locations. It was followed by Germany, albeit with significantly fewer restaurants (688 locations). Worldwide, there were 42,431 Subway restaurants in 2018.

Subway – a well-liked franchise

Subway is regarded as one of the fastest-growing franchises worldwide. Behind McDonalds and Starbucks, Subway ranks as the third most valuable fast food brand globally. The chain focuses on selling submarine sandwiches (or “subs”) in a quick service format, where customers can choose additional toppings as it is made in front of them. In the United States it is considered one of the best fast food restaurants among customers.

Is fast food dying?

Although the quick service industry is still big business, traditional fast food restaurants have already had to adapt to a growing demand for more healthy, low calorie options. There has also been a trend towards environmentally conscious consumers adopting specific diets such as gluten-free, high-protein and vegan. How this impacts the industry long-term is unclear, although brands’ willingness to accommodate and demand for speed and convenience will determine the future of fast food.
