Subway was founded in 1965 in Bridgeport, Connecticut by Fred DeLuca. Subway has since expanded to 34,000 locations worldwide serving quick nutritious sandwiches. The made-to-order sandwiches are built with fresh ingredients combined with quality meats and flavorful sauces to create a delicious meal. It is known for its commitment to healthy foods and caters to weight conscious consumers with a variety of savory sandwiches with less calories and fat than many of its fast-food restaurant counterparts. The restaurant is also dedicated to the environment, partnering with Energy Star to improve the environment with donations to Energy Star and sustainable eco-stores. It is located in a large shopping plaza with ample parking for guests.
