If you look at how huge Subway is today, you’re going to be pretty surprised to find out it was a 17-year-old guy that orchestrated the whole idea from the start.
In 1965, Fred DeLuca met his friend Peter Buck for a thousand dollars to start a submarine sandwich restaurant with. Pete agreed to lend him the money provided he co-owned the brand, and it was a deal. They opened the first restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and named it “Pete’s Super Submarines.”
About 2 years later, they renamed the restaurant “Subway” and it fared way better than they imagined it would. For that reason, they decided to expand and make it a franchise, so in 1974, they built a second restaurant in Wallingford, Connecticut, and that kick-started the franchise operation fully.
Fast forward to 12 years later and the first international Subway restaurant was opened near the seaside province of Brighton in the United Kingdom. The growth of the franchise was exceptionally fast, mostly because people always love having quick snacks now and then.
The most memorable proud franchise moment for Subway has to be in 2010 when they reached 33, 749 restaurants which surpassed McDonald’s number by 1,012 and made them the biggest fast-food chain in the world. Must’ve been wonderful.
2015, however, was a solemn year for Subway because they lost Fred DeLuca to leukemia and his sister had to take over his position as the CEO. Things kind of started going down the drain the next year and they had to close over 100 restaurants in the United States because of the net loss they were experiencing.
They eventually bounced back and showed everyone who’s boss. As of today, there are over 41,000 Subway restaurants in 111 countries worldwide and their daily dose of subs, salads, and beverages have never been better!

WHEN IS SUBWAY NATIONAL SANDWICH DAY IN 2021?
At Subway, there’s a tradition that has been going on for over 10 years now and they usually give it different titles every year, but they celebrate it in line with the National Sandwich Day.
So what exactly happens on this day? No matter what you buy at Subway on National Sandwich Day, you get to go home with a free sub! On days like this, people usually storm Subway stores with cash as little as $20, and the satisfaction that comes after it makes it seem like they visited Subway with over a $100.
National Sandwich Day is a day of remembrance for the 4th Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu who the meal was named after in 1762. Supposedly he asked his cook to give him a meal that didn’t require the use of cutlery so he could eat and play his game at the same time.
The cook then provided him two slices of bread with cheese in the middle and apart from falling in love with the meal; he named it Sandwich, after the town he was ruling.
You definitely don’t want to miss out on this Subway offer, so take note. The National Sandwich Day for 2021 is Wednesday, 3rd November 2021.
If you happen to find yourself within the Canadian borders, it would literally be a disaster if you don’t check out the treats at Subway. You can get them physically or you can order online.
Subway subs and salads can be ordered either on their website or on the Subway app. Whichever way’s best for you!
