extensive seating and additional equipment. If you are purchasing a franchise for another location opportunity, such as a non-traditional, satellite or school lunch program location, the above listed capital requirements may vary and could be substantially lower depending on the
necessary equipment you must acquire or changes in leasehold improvements you must make. The above figures do not include extensive exterior renovations.

GENERAL BREAKDOWN FOR:

Franchise Capital Requirements


The SUBWAY franchise has some of the
lowest start-up costs in the industry. Your
complete investment will depend on your
location, size, and the extent of renovations
required. There are traditional and nontraditional locations for SUBWAY franchises.
A traditional restaurant is one you see in a
shopping center or on the street corner. A
non-traditional restaurant is a store located in
an airport, hospital, truck stop, college, bus
terminal, or other sites associated with
another business. The non-traditional
locations are usually owned by existing
franchisees that have proven to be very
successful with the SUBWAY system. If you
own a location such as a convenience store, or
any non-traditional site, you may have the
opportunity to buy a franchise for that location.
Capital requirements for your area can be
found online at www.subway.com.
The estimated costs provided, represent a
wide range of possible locations throughout
the world. Remember that costs will vary in

NOTABLE GLOBAL QUOTABLES


Im a Chef by profession
and have worked as such for over 20 years in
restaurants and hotels in Europe. We were so confident of
the SUBWAY restaurants franchise that we sold all our properties in
Iceland to open our first SUBWAY store in July 1999 in Benidorm, Spain.
I now have 7 stores open in my territory including one in Alicante Airport.
Things are looking bright for SUBWAY stores and franchisees in Comunidad
Valenciana.
Helgi B. Helgason, DA Spain, owns 2 franchises

I grew up on SUBWAY
while living in the village of Manotick, Ontario,
and after working at the local store first as a sandwich artist
and then store manager, I soon realized that the concept and the brand
itself had great potential. After identifying the UK & Ireland as an untapped
market back in 1997, I decided to move to England to become a Franchisee and
Development Agent. The quality of the product and the level of customer service that
SUBWAY provides was exactly what was needed in this marketplace, and SUBWAY soon
became one of the top food service providers on the High Street. With the assistance of
my sister, Andrea Fleck, we are responsible for the development of the SUBWAY chain
within the Five Counties. Now totalling 63 stores, SUBWAY is the largest QSR in the five
Counties, of which we are the proud owners of three stores. The SUBWAY chain
provides the product, structure, and support that is required to assist their
Franchisees to reach their goals.
James Fleck, DA United Kingdom, 63 franchises

As an American, I grew up on SUBWAY food and I was always a


huge fan. I was looking for a business opportunity when I was living in Scotland
and SUBWAY was a great fit for my husband and me. We opened 3 restaurants in
Scotland and we were very happy but we saw an opportunity to develop the Subway
brand in France. Since my husband Eric is French, we decided to take it. We are
responsible for development in Normandy and the Center North of France and now
have 20 restaurants in our region. We are scheduled to open 5 more this year
and we are proud to be part of the SUBWAY family.
Allison and Eric LeFebvre, DAs France - 20 restaurants

Poland is the most dynamic and expanding market


for QSR franchising in Eastern Europe and SUBWAY is the fastest
growing brand of restaurants worldwide! Right now, I run 5 SUBWAY
restaurants in Warsaw, and considering other areas of Poland. That is constant growth,
so by end of 2012, I should have 7 restaurants. I predict that the number of SUBWAY
restaurants in Central Europe will explode, because our subs are fantastic, customers love the
taste, and how it is made like they like it, to their order, in front of their eyes. Recently
we introduced soups, coffee/breakfast and catering to Poland. So we have added new
categories, which is very exciting.
Michael Moritz, Franchisee, Warsaw, Poland - 5 restaurants

After working in the SUBWAY


system for seven years as an employee, first as a sandwich
artist and eventually as a store manager, all while in college - I had the
chance to work as an Area Supervisor for a multi-unit owner. I witnessed firsthand
how the SUBWAY franchise is such a great opportunity. When I was offered the chance
to buy five restaurants and become a multi-unit owner myself, it was a dream come
true. Sixteen years later, I own 6 restaurants and am a member of the local SFAFT
board. The SUBWAY system has been a very lucrative and exciting business to be part
of. It has made all of my financial and personal goals a reality, while at the same
time, I enjoy a quality lifestyle.
