Subway Will Put 500 More Stores Out of Their Misery

Subway restaurants announced Wednesday that they will be closing hundreds of locations in the next coming months.

Fast food sales, on the other hand, are getting hit by the drop in retail foot traffic in the places like malls, as well as the growing demand for healthier food. She adds that in the past, the company has focused on restaurant count - but now, the goal is "strengthening market share" and making sure "we have the best location". Their plans are to concentrate the opening of new stores in Germany, Great Britain and Asia.

That still leaves quite a few Subway restaurants, which now number more than 25,000 across the USA - which outnumbers mega chain McDonald's.


Subway didn't take that advice, and instead promised to redesign stores, and then in February debuted a new ad campaign called "Make It What You Want".

"Looking out over the next decade, we anticipate having a slightly smaller, but more profitable footprint in North America and a significantly larger footprint in the rest of the world", Subway said in a statement. Past year the company required franchise owners to invest more in shops, adding self-service kiosks, more comfortable seating and Wi-Fi and USB charging ports.

Store closings are new for Subway. In 2015, Fogle pled guilty to possession of child pornography and traveling across state lines to engage in sex with a minor and was sentenced to close to 16 years in prison. It's also remodeling stores for a sleeker look with touch-screen ordering kiosks.
