In spite of the appearing omnipresence of McDonald’s Golden Arches and the Starbucks’ twin-followed mermaid, sandwich chain Subway really has the most areas of any eatery around the world. In 2017, Subway had 43,912 stores world wide, beating McDonald’s at 37,241 and third-put Starbucks at 27,339 areas.
This number, be that as it may, gives a false representation of the monetary reality: while McDonald’s and Starbucks have for the most part developed their deals each year throughout the previous five years, Subway deals have been slipping since 2014, and pedestrian activity is down 7.6 percent in the course of the most recent a year, as indicated by nourishment industry statistical surveying firm Technomic. Not long after this droop started, Subway began shutting stores. More than 350 were covered in 2016; more than 800 in 2017; and another 500 in 2018.

The previous summer, the sandwich shop reported its first major upgrade, Fresh Forward, in almost 20 years.
As of late, CEO Suzanne Greco, more youthful sister of Subway originator Fred DeLuca, resigned. As the organization scans for its first non-DeLuca relative CEO since its establishing in 1965, many are pondering whether this change can turn the tide for the world’s most productive eatery network. Trevor Haynes, who headed up the chain’s business advancement, is filling in as CEO, temporarily.
