If the Navy launched submarine sandwiches instead of submarines, its bready exterior would get soggy and sailors would be covered in more olive oil than normal. Devour an edible ocean vessel with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of sandwiches and drinks at one of four Subway locations. Ranked #1 Submarine Sandwich Franchise in the 2011 "Franchise 500" issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, Subway has graced the globe with nutritious stacks of meats, crisp veggies, flavorful cheeses, and fresh-baked breads since 1965. Sandwiches, which can be left out cold or invited into a toaster, include classics, such as the turkey breast and black-forest ham, a premium big philly cheesesteak, and a host of $5 Footlong subs, which can be used to measure a child's height or the distance between here and the sun. There are also kids' meals to introduce children to the concept of eating.
Zagat voters rank Subway in the top five among mega chains in the categories of food and facilities for the 2010 Fast Food Survey. On the Today Show, Zagat CEO Tim Zagat named Subway the most popular mega fast-food chain.
- And given the fact that it has over 30,000 outlets around the world, that's not a surprise. But they really have a combination of things, they're quick, they're convenient, they're reasonably priced, and most importantly, they have healthy product. – Tim Zagat quoted on the Today Show
