After operating the Sheridan location for about 2 years, Glenn and Mike sold the franchise location to another owner, making a 33% profit from the sale. That Subway is still operating and doing well 13 years later in 2015 as this is written. The Main and Transit location was sold before it was even build for a 40% profit. That ended Mike and Glenn’s career in the Fast food industry.
It was a terrific learning experience and a good investment. But running a fast food franchise also has its challenges. Mike and I developed a high level of appreciation and respect for those small business owners that run such operations.Glenn WiggleLord Commander
