The day JARED FOGLE was featured in the Indiana University student newspaper for losing weight just by eating Subway sandwiches . . . who would've guessed that he'd CHANGE THE WORLD?

After Subway signed Jared as a spokesman, business started growing.  And growing.  And growing.

And now, Subway has officially replaced McDonald's as the world's largest restaurant chain.

At the end of 2010, Subway had 33,749 restaurants worldwide.  McDonald's had 32,737.  Subway has 24,000 restaurants in the U.S., McDonald's has less than 15,000.

So McDonald's has about a thousand fewer stores, but they're in more countries, 117 to 95.

And McDonald's makes SIGNIFICANTLY more money than Subway.  Last year Subway had $15.2 BILLION in revenue, McDonald's had $24 BILLION.
