Chain Restaurants: How They Got Their Starts


Original Location: Bridgeport, Ct.

Fun Facts: What we know as "Subway" today was originally named Pete's Super Submarines. The name was eventually changed to Subway. Part of the reason was that when dropping the "Super" for a radio ad, the shortened version sounded too much like "Pizza Marines," and resulted in a number of customers calling to ask what types of pizza they served. The photo at left is an early location in the Bridgeport, Ct. area. This is one of the very first times that the name "Subway" was used.
