Subway restaurants offer a delicious variety of footlong and 6-inch sandwiches, salads and wraps that are made with a wide assortment of meats, cheeses, vegetables and toppings. All Subway sandwiches are made on freshly baked bread and are prepared right before your eyes, just the way you like it.
The Subway restaurant chain was founded in 1965 by Fred DeLuca, a 17-year-old college freshman, and family friend Dr. Peter Buck. The first restaurant opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA on August 28 and was called Pete’s Super Submarines. There are more than 28,800 Subway franchises in 86 countries and territories worldwide (as of 02/01/08). When the company was founded, Dr. Peter Buck, co-founder, was a scientist with a doctoral degree, and Fred DeLuca had aspirations of becoming a medical doctor. Hence the name Doctor’s Associates.

Gloves are required to be worn during all food handling procedures. Also, all franchises are provided with detailed information on proper food handling procedures in order to properly train their crewmembers. Topics that are covered include proper hand washing and glove-use procedures, and food rotation. Food is prepared fresh daily and temperatures are monitored regularly. Also, a ServSafe food safety program is offered to franchisees and other field staff from the greater New England area at the Subway chain’s headquarters. Franchisees in other regions are encouraged to take the course in their local area.
In addition, the Subway chain has initiated a number of "Gold Standard" policies regarding prepared food and produce manufacturing and inspection specifications.
Although the Subway chain tries to keep its menu the same all over the world so that patrons can expect to enjoy the same great-tasting sandwiches no matter where they are, it is very conscious of the different religious and cultural dietary needs of consumers and takes steps to adapt its menu accordingly. For instance, in India, where the population is either Hindu and does not eat beef or Muslim and does not eat pork, these ingredients are appropriately substituted with chicken, lamb or turkey.
