Subway Achieves Global Fast Food Domination

Move over, McDonald's, there's a new global fast food behemoth in town: Subway has released data that shows it has 33,749 locations internationally. That's an impressive 1,012 more restaurants than McDonald's!

The burger chain still holds on to the sales record with $24 billion last year, and has locations in 117 countries, which is 22 more countries than Subway. A spokesperson for McDonald's said, "We remain focused on listening to and serving our customers, and are committed to being better, not just bigger." Excuses, excuses.
