Subway starts the search for a buyer

Some interesting Business Management material here, with sandwich chain, Subway looking to sell the business. You might start by asking pupils what type of business it is? I doubt many will know that it's a family business.

Thereafter, you might think about the reasons for looking to sell the business - yes, costs are higher but is it a classic case of the owners looking for an out before the product life cycle starts to take effect. I wonder if, unlike classic fast food options, like McDonalds, Subway's products and brand isn't strong enough to become an enduring feature of the market.

For those of us of a certain age, the name Spud-u-like, might spring to mind.
