Can I buy stock in Subway®?
No, Subway IP Inc. is a privately held company and is not traded on any stock exchange. Each franchise is individually owned and operated.

In fact, there are over 2 million sandwich varieties available from our menu choices, so you can have your Subway® sandwich with any combination of ingredients we offer. Consider those varieties as 2 million delicious sandwiches-all with your name on them.
Where is the company headquarters?
The company headquarters is located in Milford, Connecticut, with additional regional and country offices, employing about 1,000 people in total. Worldwide, its franchisees provide more than 300,000 jobs in the communities where they are located.
Can the Subway® menu accommodate my special dietary needs?
Although the Subway® brand maintains the same menu worldwide, menus do change in order to accommodate the different dietary needs of consumers and adapts where appropriate. For instance, in India, where the population is largely Hindu and does not eat beef, or Muslim and does not eat pork, these ingredients are substituted with chicken, lamb, or turkey. And because Subway® sandwiches are fresh and made to order, customers can add or eliminate ingredients based on their own dietary needs.
