MILFORD, Conn., May 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The SUBWAY® restaurant chain, which can create a floor plan to fit just about any space, is again on the look-out for potential sites that can be used to house a SUBWAY® location, regardless of the size and lay-out.
"We are not only one of the most recognizable brands to have as a tenant, but we are probably the most flexible," said John Devine, Director of Subway Real Estate. "Large spaces are great, and ones with drive-thru potential are always welcomed as well, but 25 percent of our restaurants – more than 10,500 restaurant locations - are located in what we call non-traditional spaces, those locations found in C-Stores, Universities, Government buildings, hospitals, sports arenas or Movie Theaters. Places where you may not be able to fit some of the other restaurant concepts."
John said the brand is always looking for great locations that SUBWAY® franchisees can use to bring customers a great product, at a real value and in a clean and comfortable location. At the same time, the brand offers landlords and developers a proven, stable and trusted tenant for their real estate.
Real estate professionals looking to grow with the world's largest restaurant chain are invited to meet SUBWAY® representatives at the ICSC RECon (booth #S2800 in South Hall 3 & 4, between N Street/28th Ave.), May 18th through May 20th, in Las Vegas.
The SUBWAY® chain currently has more than 43,800 locations worldwide with restaurants open in 110 countries. In total, SUBWAY® franchisees lease more than 53 million square feet of property around the globe.
"From 300 to 2,000 square feet, Subway restaurants come in all shapes and sizes," said Chris Kan, Training and Business Promotion Specialist for Subway Real Estate. "Because of our unique business model, which has minimal equipment and space requirements, a SUBWAY® restaurant can operate just about anywhere, including factories, car showrooms, museums, a church, a Goodwill training center, and there's even a floating SUBWAY® restaurant aboard a river boat in Europe. We can really do it all!"
The SUBWAY® brand was named the Number One franchise opportunity by Franchise Direct in the Top 100 Global Franchises list for the fifth year in a row. In addition, the Produce for Better Health Foundation just awarded SUBWAY® the Industry Champion award for the promotion of fresh vegetables.
