SUBWAY® Restaurants and Wal-Mart® Stores: Together For Convenience And Customer Satisfaction
-- More than 1,400 SUBWAY® Locations in U.S. Wal-Marts® --
September 21, 2007 // Franchising.com // Milford, CT -- With more than 28,000 restaurants in 86 countries around the world, the SUBWAY® chain has long been known for its convenient locations to enjoy a SUBWAY® meal – including college campuses, hospitals, truck stops, airports and amusement parks.
During the past three years, SUBWAY® restaurants have also presented their menu options to millions of U.S. Wal-Mart® customers, as the world's largest retailer has teamed with franchisees of the world's largest submarine sandwich chain to provide delicious SUBWAY® sandwiches and salads at many of their locations.
The SUBWAY® chain's sustained growth in this arena has not gone unnoticed, as the Wall Street Journal recently highlighted the SUBWAY® chain's success in its mutually beneficial Wal-Mart partnership.
Starting with a restaurant set inside a Wal-Mart® store in Ozark, Alabama, the SUBWAY® chain has far surpassed the number of McDonald's® and other quick-service restaurants as Wal- Mart's key fast-food partner, tallying 1,419 Wal-Mart® locations across the country (as of mid- September 2007).
A SUBWAY® restaurant can range anywhere from 300 to 3,000 square feet in size, offering adaptability to each Wal-Mart floor plan when it comes to restaurant design and construction. And, since the SUBWAY® menu's many items do not require deep-fat fryers or grills with added venting, fitting a customized SUBWAY® restaurant into the Wal-Mart® layout is a relatively simple process. The SUBWAY® chain is known worldwide for its extensive variety of cold, hot, and fresh Toasted™ sandwiches on freshly baked breads, including the new FRESH FIT™ meals for adults and kids, which include submarine sandwiches with 6 grams of fat or less and "better for you" sides and beverages, such as low-fat yogurt, apple slices, and 1% low-fat milk.
For Wal-Mart's consumers and its associates, bringing a bright and inviting SUBWAY® restaurant onto the premises seems to be a perfect match!
