In 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca borrowed $1,000 from Peter Buck to form Pete's Super Submarines. Never heard of it? The restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut, now goes by the more succinct "Subway," along with the 40,000-plus other locations worldwide.Thank goodness for that! Imagine the sandwich techs today: "Welcome to Pete's Super Submarines. Some sauce on your super-succulent sub sandwich?" as they gather orders for the 7.6 million sandwiches made daily around the globe.(Hungry for Subway now? Make yourself this copycat.)

Starbucks Is on Track to Become the World ’ s Biggest ‘ Restaurant ’ Chain . “ It is only a matter of time before Starbucks overtakes McDonald ’ s as the largest market cap restaurant stock,” Kalinowski writes, though he says that probably won’t happen in 2017.

How'd Subway get so popular?

It may be because Subway is one of the least expensive restaurants to franchise, according to Business Insider. Or maybe it's just that crazy-delicious aroma of baking bread. Or the 38 million possible ingredient combinations from which to choose. (By the way, this doesn't even include secret menu items, such as the Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich and Eggs Florentine Flatbread.) Whatever the reason, DeLuca turned his sandwich artistry into franchise magic, surpassing McDonald's in restaurant locations by the end of 2010, says CNN Money.

Where isn't there a Subway?

They're on every continent except Antarctica (for now). Worried about having to give up your favorite turkey on wheat or meatball on white while you travel to landlocked central Europe? No worries—head to Lichtenstein. Too busy carting the children to Sunday school to grab a Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki? Kill two birds with one stone at True Bethel Baptist Church in Buffalo, New York, where people have been worshiping and enjoying a footlong under the same roof since 2004. The pastor there happens to be the franchise owner, and if you go, you'd be supporting a location that helps teach job skills to underprivileged community members. However and wherever you choose to chow down on your Subway sandwich, you'll be in good company – 5,300 people (per minute!) can't be wrong.

Gang of Ronald McDonald clowns storm burger king and taunt members of staff .
By Bethany Gleave This is the hilarious moment a gang of 15 Ronald McDonald clowns mobbed a Burger King branch and taunted staff – to the hilarity of the fast food store’s customers. Nici Jones spotted the group dressed as the McDonald’s mascot on Saturday September 23 as they burst into the Minehead, Wales, branch and videoed the gang as they began to chant at the cashiers. Footage shows the mob wearing the iconic yellow onesie and red hair accompanied by Ronald’s rival The Hamburglar as the pile into the branch and chant ‘you’re s*** and you know you are’ repeatedly. However, nursery nurse Nici said that she was impressed by how well the Burger King staff members took the jibes at their employer. Nici, from Cardiff, said: "We were on the way out and decided to call in for some food. "While we were waiting we heard chanting behind us and all these Ronald McDonald clowns came into Burger King. There was around 15 of them all together. "It was an 80s weekend so they had dressed like this to go out as part of the fancy dress. We see the group every year and they're always up for a laugh. "I'm not sure it was planned before the night. The outfits definitely were but I don’t think the visit to Burger King was. "I think they were probably just walking past and decided to do it on the off chance. Everyone in the restaurant just went along with it. "It was really funny. Everyone just got it straight away.
