Become a Subway Franchisee

Why Choose Subway?

  • Low Franchise Fee. A one-time $15,000 fee purchases a twenty year agreement renewable for an additional twenty years with no additional fees.
  • Local Training and Support. Every SUBWAY® restaurant has a trained Business Consultant who provides operational support and compliance evaluations to help you run a profitable restaurant. Our Business Consultants help you establish a training module for your staff.
  • Franchisee Training. Two weeks at SUBWAY® restaurants’ corporate training facility in Milford, CT provides you with the foundation of knowledge and the operational experience to run your restaurant to SUBWAY® standards.
  • Simple Operation. SUBWAY® restaurants’ operations manual spells it out clearly and simply. There is no cooking, no use of grills and no fryers.
  • University of Subway. Free online training is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The course curriculum meets operational, financial, management and marketing needs.
  • Independent Purchasing Council (IPC). IPC is a corporation owned and run by SUBWAY® franchisees. It was established to approve and monitor SUBWAY® gold standard vendors and to utilize the buying power of more than 42,000 locations. All products used by SUBWAY® franchisees including food, equipment and insurance must meet the criteria IPC establishes.
  • Subway Real Estate, LLC (SRELLC). SRELLC negotiates and signs all the master leases for every SUBWAY® location. The Development Team works with SRELLC to identify and secure new locations and facilitate the lease negotiation process. Franchisees benefit from the experience and long term vision of SRELLC. A site review process protects our franchisees with established site viability parameters. Our franchisees sign a sub-lease with SRELLC under the same terms as the master lease and pay rent directly to the landlord each month.
  • Advertising Power. The SUBWAY® Franchise Advertising Fund Trust (SFAFT) is another corporation owned and run by SUBWAY® franchisees. SFAFT oversees national, regional and local advertising dollars with input and voting power from every franchisee. We currently advertise on television 52 weeks a year. SFAFT also sponsors community events and national sporting events.
  • Development Agents. Our franchisees benefit from the experience and support from four offices across North America with more than 2000 open and operating SUBWAY® restaurants. Together they lead the Development Team to support our franchisees.
  • Environmental Responsibility. SUBWAY® continues to develop new ways to keep our restaurants green and limit our environmental impact. From light bulbs to cleaning products to reusable ‘Kids Pak’ meal bags, SUBWAY® works with our franchisees to incorporate recycled material, maintain energy efficient restaurants and reduce waste.

What Makes a Great Franchisee?

Learning to create a great SUBWAY® sandwich is the easy part. Our formulas will have you creating our famous “made before your eyes” sub sandwiches before you know it. However, the business side of SUBWAY® provides the vision for success. We are looking for goal oriented, business savvy entrepreneurs who are willing to apply the energy and time to realize this vision.

Our franchisees bring the skill set and business experience that help meet our criteria for success which include the following:

  • Owner/Operator. Be prepared to have a “hands-on” approach to ownership. A SUBWAY® franchisee is actively involved in the running of their SUBWAY® restaurant.
  • Follow The Business Model. SUBWAY® requires our franchisees to follow the Operations Manual. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Be part of our team.
  • Management Skills. You will set the tone and be a role model for your employees. Create an environment of mutual respect. You will be responsible for delegating work, ensuring SUBWAY® standards of operation and keeping your employees up to date on promotions, operations and safety practices.
  • Mentoring/Training Experience. Be prepared to establish a training program for your staff and empower them to protect your investment.
  • Financially Viable. Franchisees show financial viability early in the approval process. Be prepared with documented verification of net worth, assets, cash allocation and investment strategy.
  • Community Involvement. SUBWAY® franchisees live locally and continually network with community businesses and civic organizations. They build their business through these associations.
  • Successfully Complete the Qualifying Process. Investigate SUBWAY® thoroughly. Do your due diligence. The local Development Agent office will guide you through the process while evaluating your skills to meet the challenge of becoming a successful SUBWAY® franchisee.
  • Implement a Marketing Plan. Our franchisees are building marketing plans, setting goals and following through with their plans.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I become a franchisee? Complete an application online.  You will receive a Franchise Disclosure Document.  It is your responsibility to read it.  Next, pass a basic skills test.  Then you will be ready to investigate our business opportunity with the help of the local development office.  The Development Agent office and Doctor’s Associates Inc. will determine if you meet our qualifying standards.
  • How much is the SUBWAY® Franchise Fee? The initial franchise fee is $15,000. If qualified to purchase additional locations, the franchise fee is $7,500.
  • What is the term of a SUBWAY® franchise? The $15,000 franchise fee purchases a franchise honored for twenty years.  This franchise is renewable for an additional twenty years with no fees.
  • What kind of training is available to new franchisees?

  • How much money can I expect to make and what is my return on investment? In our Franchise Disclosure Document, we further explain why we cannot provide an earnings claim. We do not furnish or authorize our employees, salespeople, or Development Agents to furnish any oral or written information concerning the actual or potential sales. Actual results vary from restaurant to restaurant and we cannot estimate the results of any particular franchise. We encourage you to call SUBWAY® restaurant owners from the Franchise Disclosure Document to learn firsthand why they decided to acquire additional franchises.
  • What is my financial obligation as a SUBWAY® franchisee? Beyond the one time franchise fee of $15,000 you will be required to pay royalties to Doctor’s Associates Inc. of 8% on weekly gross sales.  You will be required to pay an advertising fee to the Subway Franchise Advertising Fund Trust (SFAFT) of 4.5% on weekly gross sales.

  • Do I sign the lease? You will sign a sub-lease with Subway Real Estate, LLC (SRELLC) under the same terms and conditions as the master lease.  You will pay rent directly to the landlord each month.
  • Where do I purchase food for my restaurant? All franchisees are required to order food from an approved vendor. Pricing, quality and transport are monitored by SUBWAY® restaurants’ Independent Purchasing Council (IPC).
  • Is operational support available? Yes. Each franchisee is assigned a Business Consultant to help you meet SUBWAY® standards of operation.  In addition, support is available from the development offices and University of SUBWAY® courses.
  • How do I advertise my SUBWAY? Franchisees pay 4.5 % royalty to the Subway Franchise Advertising Fund Trust (SFAFT) each week.  Those funds help pay for SUBWAY® national advertising. Franchisees are also encouraged to advertise to their local customer base.
