MILFORD, CT — Now you can have your Italian B.M.T. and NEW Chipotle Cheesesteak on Sunflower Crunch Bread delivered to your door. Subway restaurants announce today its partnership with DoorDash, Grubhub, Postmates and Uber Eats to deliver its craveable sandwiches, wraps and salads across the U.S.

Guests can order their favorite Footlongs and salads at http://www.Subway.com/Delivers.

“Delivery is more than just giving our guests a way to order the sandwiches they want,” says Michael Lang, Subway’s Senior Director of Global Convenience. “We want to connect with consumers and give them the convenience of choice, whether it’s in a customized, made-to-order sandwich or in how they get their meals. Amazing partners like DoorDash, Grubhub, Postmates, and Uber Eats give us the opportunity to reach guests wherever they are and whenever they get a Subway craving.”

With food delivery making up a growing share of the $800 billion restaurant industry according to National Restaurant Association and an expectancy to grow at least 12% over the next five years according to Technomic, it’s clear that consumers want and demand delivery options. Subway’s move into delivery is an example of how the brand is using technology to give its guests more of what they want.
