In an update last week, Dun & Bradstreet editor Michael McLellan discussed two of the reasons for the success of sandwich chain Subway (which is owned by Doctor’s Associates). First, the dining concept is extremely portable and adaptable, allowing for an ease in franchising that has resulted in some 41,500 locations across the globe. Second, the continued focus in the US on “healthier” fast food has been a boon for the chain, stretching back to the late 1990s/early 2000s when Jared Fogle lost nearly 250 pounds on the “Subway diet.” Follow Michael on Twitter.
