Subway confirms closure of 1,000 stores last year


The world’s largest fast food chain is continuing to shrink. 

Subway reports it closed 1,000 restaurants in the U.S. lat year. 

Not only is that more than it planned — the number may actually be higher than that. 

That’s because Subway didn’t disclose how many new stores it opened — and some of the closed restaurants include locations that opened during the same year. 

Like other fast food restaurants, Subway is struggling to keep up with changing consumer tastes. 

The chain plans to remodel many of its stores with self-ordering kiosks, more comfortable seats, and USB charging ports. 

Subway currently has 24,000 stores in the U.S. 

It has closed more than it has opened every year since 2016.
