Subway is a leading American franchise that made “foot long” part of the lexicon of the masses. Though Subway focuses on subs (aka submarine sandwiches, grinders, hoagies, etc.) they also serve up salads, breakfast sandwiches, pizzas, soup, and cookies. With a focus on fresh ingredients, and backed by the motto “Eat fresh”, Subway has become a dominant force in the fast food industry as Americans have become increasingly interested in healthier eating options.

2. Firehouse Subs Franchise

Firehouse Restaurant Group operates and franchises more than 250 Firehouse Subs sandwich shops in a dozen southern states. The chain offers a variety of hot and cold sub-style sandwiches, as well as soups, salads, and sides. Brothers and firefighters Robin and Chris Sorensen started Firehouse Subs in 1994 after gaining popularity as firehouse cooks. Although most of its units are located in the Southeast, in 2009 Firehouse Subs has taken advantage of commercial real estate bargains and expanded into new regions, including Indianapolis, Denver, Phoenix, and Las Vegas.
