Omnivore - OMG, McDonald's is doomed
Subway soon to have more locations
Whoa! Subway is about to overtake McDonald's. Okay, we're not talking sales; we're talking number of locations, but still...:
Restaurant upstart Subway, riding high on the marketing message of healthy fast food, will overtake its titanic competitor McDonald's in American store locations by the end of 2009, with a shocking total of more than 32,300 outlets.
That's something few consumers could imagine before the sandwich chain piggybacked on huge weight loss of morbidly obese Jared Fogle — who lost 245 pounds by exercising and eating only its sandwiches, in contrast to Super Size Me's Morgan Spurlock, who got fat and sick eating McDonald's grub.
