Was just told by a friend that Subway restaurants have now overtaken the number of McDonald’s outlets in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Isn’t true?
After doing a quick check, it look as if my friend is telling truth. This is a trend that is expected to continue throughout the European continent over the coming years. Subway is even being recognized as the fastest growing franchise in the world. Subway currently has about 31,814 outlets whereas McDonald’s has about 31,000 (but the data is 2.5 years old). Subway is very aggressive, don’t you think so? It has opened over 2,000 outlets in year 2005 alone.
Back here close to my home, as of Oct 2009, a total of 35 Subway in Malaysia, 76 in Singapore and 27 in Thailand. In year 2007, the numbers of outlets were only 14 in Malaysia, 37 in Singapore and 20 in Thailand.
In August 2009, Mcdonald’s has 185 outlets in Malaysia and 91 outlets in Singapore.
Within the next 4 to 5 years, will Subway become the new face of fast food, replacing big M?
We just have to wait and see.
