As of the end of 2010, there were 32,737 McDonald’s restaurants in the world……does that number seem low to you? It did to me- I always imagined there were over 100,000, easy. Perhaps counting fast food restaurants is not my forte.
So McDonald’s is number one, right? WRONG. After being the top dog for years, McDonald’s has now been eclipsed by the Eatery of Fresh, Subway, with 33,749 restaurants worldwide.
They are both put to shame by Yum! Brands, who owns Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut, and is responsible for the horrid combo restaurants you see everywhere- all their permutations total up to 38,000 restaurants worldwide
I have nothing to contribute about any of this, I just thought it was fun to know that Subway beat McDonald’s.
