Subway Beats Out Other Chains for Most Closings Due to Health Violations in the City


An analysis of Health Department data by the New York Daily News revealed that Subway restaurants were shuttered more times for health-code violations than any other major franchise in the city. In the past five years, the chain’s stores have been shut down 55 times.

Kennedy Fried Chicken was the runner-up for most DOH closures, coming in at 31 times over the past five years. Other chains in the top five: Dunkin’ Donuts (23), Crown Fried Chicken (22), and Golden Krust (20). The Daily News reports that some Subway patrons were shocked at the chain’s horrible restaurant-inspection record. Really?
