We are saddened to learn of the death of close friend and incredible entrepreneur, Fred DeLuca.
His death comes just weeks after Subway celebrated the company's 50th anniversary, the company said in a statement that called DeLuca a "franchising visionary." He opened the first restaurant in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1965 as "Pete's Subway", borrowing $1,000 from family friend Peter Buck, who had suggested he open a shop to sell submarine sandwiches to finance his education.
The pace of growth accelerated considerably after 1974, when DeLuca and Buck sold the right to use the Subway brand to franchisees in return for marketing and other support. Today, Subway boasts 44,270 restaurants in 110 countries, more than McDonald's, with the biggest representation outside North America in Australia, China, India and Europe. Sales totalled $11.9 billion last year, according to Technomic, a food industry consultant.

The world and especially the entrepreneurial community lost a Entrepreneurship Hall of Famer today, as S. Truett Cathy passed away at 93.
Samuel Truett Cathy was the founder of Chick-fil-A, an American fast food restaurant chain based in the Atlanta suburb of College Park, Georgia. Cathy was born in Eatonton, Georgia, in 1921. He served in the United States Army during World War II. Cathy began the chain in the Atlanta suburb of Hapeville in 1946 with a restaurant called the Dwarf Grill, named because of its small size. It was there that he, along with his brother and business partner, Ben, created the chicken sandwich that later became the signature menu item for Chick-fil-A.
On December 1, 2012 in front of a sold out audience at the Estate, S. Truett Cathy was inducted into the Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. Having Truett and his son Dan, President of Chick-fil-A, with us was such a special gift for everyone, and now you can watch his induction speech and more by clicking this link on the EpiCenter Network.
