The article presents updates on the presence of Subway restaurant chain stores in the U.S. and Canada. June and July proved to be a couple of mighty busy months for the sensationally popular Subway restaurant chain, which opened 340 new locations in 35 countries around the globe, including 208 in 39 U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces. Intriguingly, of those new franchises, 37 were opened inside c-stores, and a full 64 inside Wal-Mart stores from coast to coast.
