Subway’s Sales Growth Has Been Sluggish Post-Jared Fogle Scandal
The company added stores, but not revenue
In the last year, as the country’s largest restaurant chain pushed on with efforts to rid its food of antibiotics alongside dealing with a legal settlement and a disgraced former spokesperson, its sales numbers dipped, according to BuzzFeed News, which cited data from the consultancy firm Technomic.
Subway added new locations in the last year, bringing its total in the U.S. up to 27,103, but the company’s sales reportedly declined by 3.4 percent to $11.5 billion in 2015. Its 2014 sales were $11.9 billion, which marks a 3 percent decline from the previous year.
