Subway has been selling sandwiches and salads to Vietnam since 2010 and has opened five shops in HCMC, the country’s commercial hub, over the last six years.

Mark McGrath, general director of Subway Vietnam, said Subway hopes to have 20 shops in Vietnam in the next three years through both franchise contracts and opening shops itself. A franchisee would have to pay $110,000 in initial fee. 

Subway Vietnam has to import most of the materials needed to make sandwiches, except some vegetables from Da Lat City, Vietnam.
