Subway Chicken Sub

Founded by Fred de Luca in Connecticut in 1965, the  Subway chain of sandwich shops was soon an expanding franchise operation. The first franchise in Australia opened in Perth in 1988.  Australia is the brand’s largest market outside North America. As of 2011, Subway had about 430 more outlets Australia-wide than McDonald’s, but only about 2% of take-away market share vs Macca’s 19.5%. (IBIS World research)
