All About Subway
Subway is one of the largest fast food chains in the entire world, with over 41,500 locations in more than 100 countries. Almost 24,000 of these locations are in the US alone, meaning you’re never far from a fresh, delicious Subway sandwich. As well as subs, you can also enjoy pizzas in some locations, and fresh salads made to order.
The Subway chain began life as “Pete’s Super Submarines” in 1965, before it was renamed to Subway in 1968. The first store was in Bridgeport, Connecticut and in 1978, the first store on the West Coast opened in Fresno, California. International expansion began with Bahrain in 1984 and in 2004, Subways started opening in Walmart supercenters with more Subways than McDonald’s in the supercenters by 2007. The company is still owned by the DeLuca family since it was first established.
If you’re catering for a large event or business meeting, Subway can help. Place your order in advance for collection or arrange delivery through one of Subway’s partners, and you can feed your family, friends or colleagues with a fantastic range of submarine sandwiches and tasty snacks.
Visit your local Subway or order for delivery through one of Subway’s partners, and use Subway promo codes and coupons to grab a great deal on your lunch. Never pay full price for your Subway sandwich when you shop with a discount code.
What Subway Sells
Subway primarily sells submarine sandwiches, made fresh to order in front of you. You can select a sandwich from the menu and then customize it to suit you – including choosing the type of bread, swapping ingredients or just asking for extra of a favorite item. Breakfast is also available, so you can pick up a folded sandwich and a coffee for that early pick-me-up.
Alongside the main menu of sandwiches, you can upgrade to a meal if you want to add some chips, drinks or fresh warm cookies to your order. If you’d prefer a salad you can ditch the bread, while some stores also offer personal pizzas that are prepared and cooked super-quickly in the same Subway style.
MyWay is the Subway loyalty program. By downloading the Subway app to your smartphone, you can sign up to MyWay to start earning tokens every time you order. When you’ve saved 200 tokens you can get $2 off your order.
You’ll also get exclusive deals sent straight to your phone, as well as offers to give you tasty treats on your birthday and other surprises. You’ll also be sent promotions where you can earn bonus tokens to put towards your next $2 reward.
Subway Gift Cards
You can give someone the gift of a delicious lunch with a Subway gift card. Available in $5 increments, you can order an eGift Card online or buy a physical card in store. eGift cards can be topped up to be used again, and they can be registered to earn MyWay rewards tokens when they’re spent.
Look out for special offers on Subway gift cards, including the chance to earn a free $5 card when you order a $25 card, and discounted rates for corporate customers buying 10 cards or more.
It’s easier than ever to order your favourite sandwich with the Subway app. Download it to place orders ready for collection, or to order for delivery through one of Subway’s partners. You can also track your MyWay rewards tokens, and use the app to get exclusive coupons and discounts to use on your next order.
The app also includes a store locator, meaning even when you’re travelling to a new city you’ll be able to find your local Subway store quickly.
Many Subway stores let you order your sub sandwich for delivery. It’s available at over 9,000 stores in the US, making it easy to grab lunch without leaving the comfort of your home or office. Subway doesn’t have its own delivery drivers. Instead, it has partnered with four companies to get your sub to you – GrubHub, UberEats, DoorDash and Postmates. Customization options may be more limited when you order your Subway for delivery.
As well as accepting personal orders, Subway also specializes in catering for events, parties and meetings. Usually, you’ll need to let your store know the day before your event but in some circumstances, they can help out on the same day.
You can order a mix of platters, alongside chips, salads and cookies to please every palate at your party. Or, go for the impressive showstopper with a giant sub. Starting at 3ft long and available in 3 ft increments, these amazing sandwiches are ideal for larger meetings. A 6-foot sub should feed 20-25 people, as a rough guide, and will cost around $100.
You can pay for your Subway order using your credit or debit card, or with cash. If you’re ordering online for delivery you can also use PayPal.
Using Subway Coupons
Always look out for Subway coupons before you go to buy your lunch. Subway regularly runs deals to help you enjoy a cheap snack, but coupons can bring that cost down even further and keep more dollars in your wallet.
Printed coupons can just be handed over when you pay for your order in a Subway store. If you have a promo code, use this when ordering online through the website or Subway smartphone app.

Does Subway deliver?
Subway don’t employ their own delivery drivers but they make use of four partnerships for delivery orders. Depending on where you live, you can get Subway delivered through DoorDash, GrubHub, UberEats or Postmates.
You can still order through the Subway website or smartphone app. Your order will then be placed with the most suitable company depending on your location. However, if there’s a problem with your delivery, you may need to contact the relevant delivery company rather than Subway in order to get it resolved.
Are Subway cookies vegan?
Subway has a number of vegan-friendly products on the menu, but unfortunately the cookies are not one of those. They contain dairy ingredients and so should be avoided by anyone following a vegan diet. Subway also caters for a variety of other diets including gluten-free bread options, so most people will be able to enjoy a delicious fresh sandwich no matter your dietary needs.
Are Subway salads healthy?
Overall, Subway is one of the healthier fast food options. Much of the food isn’t fried and so is lower calorie that competitors. The salads, in particular, are relatively low calorie, with all nutritional information available on the Subway website. If you choose to add a dressing then they will often rise dramatically, but even then the salads are relatively low calorie. Beyond calories, also look out for the sodium content.
Can Subway sandwiches be kept overnight?
Sometimes, particularly if you’ve ordered a footlong sub, your order might be a little too much to finish in one sitting. In these circumstances, it’s fine to leave the leftovers of your sub until the following day, providing you place it in the refrigerator. Don’t leave it out overnight as bacteria can develop. As long as it hasn’t been at room temperature for more than 2 hours, it should be safe to eat the following day, but don’t leave it longer than that.
Does Subway have a drive thru?
Most Subway stores don’t have a drive thru, because the appeal of a Subway when you visit the store is to go inside and have your sub customized to suit your exact tastes, something you can’t really do behind the wheel. Some locations do have a drive thru, if you just want an off-the-menu sub. You can filter to find these locations on the Subway website or app, to save time if you’re in a hurry.
At what age does Subway hire?
Subway follows the state laws for minimum working ages. Generally, this is 16 years old, although in some states it may be 15 years so it’s worth checking if you’re interested in working as a Sandwich Artist or a cashier. You can’t work as a store manager until you reach 18 years old. You’ll need to be legal to work, which means you’ll need a social security number. Subway is an equal opportunities employer and they are happy to give opportunities to younger applicants – after all, Fred DeLuca was 17 when he launched Subway.
Which is the healthiest bread at Subway?
You can find all of the information about the nutritional value of Subway’s breads on the Subway website. Generally, the healthiest breads are the 9-grain wheat and 9-grain honey oat subs, along with the multigrain flatbreads. These are the lowest calorie options and they have the lowest amount of sodium and fat too.
What is the Subway diet?
The ‘Subway Diet’ was part of a popular marketing campaign which saw claims that a customer lost a significant amount of weight by primarily eating Subway meals. The customer was used in advertising campaigns for almost 15 years until Subway severed ties with him. The Subway Diet that the customer followed was promoted as a way to show Subway as the healthiest of all the fast-food options.
Which sandwiches are $5 at Subway?
For a number of years, Subway offered a range of subs at a standard price of $5. This long-running promotion was originally intended to last just a few weeks but it became massively popular, and so was retained for much longer. The price of the range eventually increased to $6, before dropping to $5 again before the promotion was dropped altogether.
Now, there are various promotions at different times that may see selected subs drop to $5 or less. Download the Subway app and you can keep track of the latest offers so that as soon as your favorite sub drops to $5 you can make sure to swing by and pick one up.
Where are the Subway headquarters?
The Subway headquarters has remained in Connecticut where the first sandwich shop was originally opened. The address is 325 Sub Way, Milford, Connecticut 06461-3059.
