Subway is the fastest growing fast food chain in the world. Founded in Connecticut, America, in 1965, as of 2010, they had over 1000 stores than McDonald's in the world. In 2013, Subway has more than 40,700 restaurants all over the world.
The founder of ‘Subway’ Fred DeLuca started off in the food industry by opening a sandwich shop at the age of 17 in order to raise funds for paying his college fees. Young Fred did not want to be a businessman but a medical doctor. He got a loan of $1000 from a close friend who encouraged him to go ahead in setting up a restaurant. In 1965, he and his friend Peter Buck started their first venture together which they called ‘Pete’s Super Submarines’. The long oblong shaped bun dish was a novelty and they hoped that it would click with the neighborhood crowd.
