The SUBWAY® restaurant chain, an industry leader in providing healthier options for consumers, announced the opening of five new “Green” SUBWAY® Eco-Restaurants – with more on the way – each designed with environmentally friendly aspects to reduce energy, water, and waste consumption in cost effective ways.

“All of these new eco-restaurants reflect the brand’s commitment to social responsibility and sustainability,” said Marketing Director Elizabeth Stewart, who heads the SUBWAY® brand’s corporate social responsibility efforts. “We have made a commitment to make our restaurants and operations more environmentally responsible. As the largest franchise chain in the U.S., we know we can make a real difference and are working towards that goal.”

Going green is something franchisee Dr. Burhan Ghanayem takes very seriously. Burhan retired as an environmental health scientist, although his passion for conservation continues.
