Americans like convenience, and they don't want to wait. When meal time rolls around that combination creates a natural opportunity for sub sandwich franchises. Offering fast service with healthy options, today's sub franchises also offer families and individuals the flexibility to customize their meal. Those are just some of the reasons why sub sandwich quick service restaurants are so popular. In addition, if you are exploring the idea of a food franchise, but are worried about the long hours, a sub sandwich shop is a great choice. Unlike more traditional dining establishments, sandwich shops are typically busiest at lunch and don't have late nights.

While sub sandwich franchises might seem like a fairly cut and dry category, there is actually a great deal of variety in the franchise options available. From shops that offer a more classic sub experience, to quick service sandwich locations that embrace healthier toppings for their on-the-go meals, there is a franchise for every entrepreneur and market.
The key to the sub sandwich category is offering the highest quality ingredients in tasty, on-trend combinations. Consumers are hungry for choices that allow them to lead their busy lives without sacrificing taste. And of course, they want that convenience and deliciousness to be good for them as well. Sub sandwich franchises check off all those boxes, and more. Additionally, the humble sandwich is ever adaptable to whatever culinary trend is the hottest at the moment, so a sub shop can adapt as tastes change to stay competitive.
