Subway Passes McDonald’s in Store Count

Posted: March 8, 2011 by jbianchi23 in Uncategorized

Recent franchise data shows that Subway Restaurants surpassed the famously widespread McDonald’s chain. The biggest increase in terms of number of chains being opened is in China. The emerging markets like China have strong economic growth in comparison to the high unemployment and scared US consumers in the United States. Companies like Subway are seeking to expand in emerging markets and less so in the US.

Since the overseas markets are growing at an astonishing pace, will the US falter and no longer be a world economic power? If growth rates continue at their current rates, the US will be surpassed by China, Japan, and Brazil in no time. What will this mean for us, the US consumer? It might mean even fewer jobs will be available for Americans since operations are continually being moved overseas. This would hurt growth even more – potentially impacting the futures of all of us.
