With over 23,000 locations reported in 2019, Subway is one of the most popular restaurants in the United States. So, how did this fast-food chain begin?
Subway was founded in 1965 by Fred Deluca, a 17-year-old college student, and Peter Buck, his family friend. Peter loaned Fred $1,000 to open a restaurant in Connecticut and “Pete’s Super Submarines” was born. The restaurant specialized in submarine sandwiches made by splitting an Italian roll and filling it with meat, cheese, vegetables, and condiments.
A second location was opened in 1966 and the name was changed to Subway two years later. Over the following decades, the restaurant chain franchised/expanded, and quickly became international. Today, there are over 40,000 Subway restaurants worldwide.
