We did it Jared! Subway on top

March 9, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
It’s time to celebrate.

Subway has now surpassed McDonalds as leader in the number of restaurants internationally. Subway has 33,749 while McDonalds has 32,737.

I guess the formerly rotund Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle gets some of the credit. I think I should deserve some credit too.

I’ve been a Subway aficionado for two decades, taking in those footlongs from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific and dozens of places in between.

I also was similar to Jared at one point in my life losing weight due in part to Subway, though not the hundreds of pounds he shed.

Here in Marshalltown we have three of those 33,749 restaurants so we can also take some credit, as one is located downtown on Main Street, one is in Wal-Mart and the other is in strip mall just a few blocks away from Wal-Mart.
