Subway Passes 30,000 Restaurants Mark

Subway had set a goal of having 30,000 restaurants by 2010.  They've already made their goal...2 years early!

Their new total (as is constantly updated on their web site) is 30,017 locations in 88 countries.

They recently opened 9 new stores in a 24-hour period in Sahuarita, Ariz.; Bakersfield, Calif.; Peachtree City, Ga.; Sneads Ferry, N.C.; Gronau, Germany; Hong Kong; Durham and Windsor, Ontario; and Stockholm, Sweden.

"The stores and their franchisees represent many of the diversified aspects of the Subway chain that have enabled it to grow so successfully over the years," said Subway spokesman Les Winograd.

Subway has a diversity of restaurant concepts across the globe. For example the new Hong Kong store seats only 10 customers, the one in Germany is only 140 square feet, the North Carolina restaurant is 1,500 square feet and the Windsor, Ontario location is inside a Home Depot.

"We’re constantly discovering places to put Subway restaurants," from college campuses to hospitals, Winograd said.
