QSR chain Subway, which specialises in sandwiches and salads, has taken its store count in India to 200 with the opening of an outlet in Navrangpura, Ahmedabad. The outlet is spread over an area of 1,200 sq.ft and has seating space for 50 people.
Since its first location opened in New Delhi in December 2001, the brand has been growing steadily in India. The company’s goal is to have 530 stores by 2015. However, Manpreet Gulri, country development manager for India, believes this is a conservative goal since customers want to see Subway in more places.
With more than 34,000 outlets in 95 countries, Subway is the world’s largest sandwich franchise. Headquartered in Milford, Connecticut, the Subway chain was co-founded by Fred DeLuca and Dr Peter Buck in 1965.
