When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop—then called Pete's Subway—proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.

Today, Subway restaurants number over 34,000 around the world—almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway's website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutrition information and fastest mile time online.

The cooks in Avocado Freddy’s kitchen, located in new downtown Hayward, have the pleasure of opening crates of produce straight from the vine, tree, or farm. The fresh contents of those crates fill their stations with the ingredients they use to customize their burritos, salads, and tacos. Diners can pick their own toppings including avocado, jicama, and limes, or opt for one of Freddy’s favorites such as the Cheesy Pleasy, with 100% Angus ground beef, extra cheese, and cilantro-lime rice, or the Fruity Adventure with rotisserie chicken, strawberries, and mint vinaigrette. Available options for all meals include shrimp, steak, grilled chicken, slow-roasted pulled pork, and Angus ground beef. Staff members also blend custom smoothies to order from bananas, blueberries, and watermelon.

Hot Dog on a Stick Founder Dave Barham opened his first Hot Dog on a Stick in Santa Monica in 1946, and the company has since burgeoned into an employee-owned franchise that's more than 100 eateries strong and spans 11 states. Best known for a 100% turkey hot dog dunked in corn-bread batter made from Dave's mother's recipe and cooked in soy oil, Hot Dog on a Stick also pioneered the dipping and be-sticking of mild american and spicy jalapeño jack cheese. Smiling employees in red-, white-, and blue-striped uniforms with, as Dave put it, "a splash of lemonade," hand over cherry, lime, sugar-free, or original lemonade that they make fresh every two hours by squeezing Ventura County lemons until they cry.
