Sandwich & Sub Store Franchises - Industry Market Research Report

Sandwich & Sub Store Franchises

The Sandwich and Sub Store Franchises industry has experienced consistent growth over the past five years. Franchisees managed to maintain momentum by developing new menu options that capitalize on increasing awareness of the health risks associated with a high-fat diet. As a result, the industry has been able to thrive, despite rapidly evolving consumer preferences for fast food that have led to the stagnation and decline of other quick-service restaurants. Industry operators will continue to contend with stiff external competition from members of the fast-casual food segment. In turn, many operators will continue to expand their menu options to include a wider variety of healthy food options.

This industry comprises franchise establishments that prepare and serve custom sandwiches and subs. Reports in the IBISWorld Business Franchise collection focus solely on the operation of franchised outlets and exclude nonfranchise data. They show the total number of franchise outlets, franchise network-sales (revenue) and the average profit margin earned by franchisees. These reports also highlight the largest franchisors by market share.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
