We all know that Subway has always been one of the healthier choices as far as the fast-food industry is concerned. However, there is one particular outlet which holds the record for selling the most submarine sandwiches annually across all Subway outlets globally. Here comes the best part. The outlet is in India.
Meet 50-year-old Griffith David Bengaluru-based entrepreneur who owns the Subway Franchise at the Bengaluru‘s Kempegowda International Airport. The outlet is so popular that it bakes fresh bread up to 10 times per day in a bid to meet its massive demand.
While speaking about his outlet, David told SMBstory, “My outlet at Bengaluru airport was awarded number one in unit sales worldwide in 2015 and 2019. It is in a great location, open 24/7, managed efficiently and serves only fresh food. Further, we ensure the line moves quickly. This way, we are able to sell around 1,200 subs each day,” he added in a statement.
With IT background and an MBA degree from Thunderbird School of Global Management, Arizona, David was pretty much interested in entering the food industry but had no prior experience and it was then he made up his mind to take up the Subway franchise. As the days progressed, Griffith slowly acquired the franchise for five more Subway outlets.
During his IT days, Griffith worked with Intel and Yahoo and used to manage teams and business units in countries like Asia, Europe, and North America.
Besides these franchises, Griffith had the Habanero Restaurant chain in several cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, & Chennai. Despite good reviews & loyal customers, the restaurant was not able to generate expected profits. At this time, Griffith came up with a different strategy.
With the first-hand experience, he had received from managing these Subway outlets he then started Habanero Sauce business from scratch in 2012.
Having Subway franchise along with his restaurant business, Griffith entered Habanero Sauce business which took him to a whole new level. The Habanero business toady has a total revenue of Rs 1.5 crore and has 30 employees working under him.

Ever Thought Why Beer Bottles Are Green Or Brown In Colour?
There is a lot of demand for beer these days and at present, the beer industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. It is a significant global business, chipping in with whopping annual revenues of $294.5 billion.
Beer is much cheaper as compared to most of the alcoholic products. Though countries consume alcohol to a large extent, beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in the world and it is loved by the majority of the people.
Beer is also the third most popular of all beverages, only behind water and tea. Beer is not only consumed because of its price tag but it is also one of the oldest alcoholic drink in the world. It holds a strong history as well.
We may know about beer bottles and stuff but have you ever wondered why they are mostly brown or green in colour? There is a specific reason behind why the beer should be filled in only such bottles of 2 different colours.
In the ancient days, beer was sold in transparent bottles and the brewers learnt that the liquid in the clear bottles (colourless) was easily exposed to sunlight following which it affected the entire content causing some unpleasant smell.
This is because the Ultra Violet (UV) rays coming from the Sun reacts very easily with the acid in beer when filled in clear bottles. To sort out the woes, the brands came up with an idea of implementing brown colour for beer bottles as brown blocks the UV rays to react directly with the liquid stored in the bottles.
At the time of the fierce world war 2, there was a clear shortage of brown glass and with no option left, the brewers once again switched to the transparent bottles. They learnt that clear bottles didn’t sport a royal look which in turn, affected the entire sales of beer.
To catch up the pace and to inflate the sales and to make beer bottles look a bit more catchy with premium quality, the brewers used the new formula to use green colour in a bid to attract beer lovers again.
From then on, the beer companies are using these 2 different colours to attract a wide range of customers at the best scene. Much to their trade secret, they started enjoying success after they introduced 2 different colours to pack a punch. Kindly share this information with your friends.
