Everything I have heard about a Subway franchise is that they are very hard to compete. Margins are tight and competition is very fierce, even among your own franchisee's.

Entrepreneur magazine online has a lot of franchise info. What do you want to know? How much do you have to invest?

I guess you pray you get a location in the middle of nowhere with highway traffic?

This is what I have in my neighborhood with Subway alone...I could drive passed about a half dozen Subways on my way home off of BW8. Whew!

subway 77571 - Google Maps

How does that work??? There's four of them on the same road heading home within minutes of each other! That is a Starbucksesque formula for...failure.
