World's Largest Fast Food Chains

Slide 1 of 11


Number of stores: approximately 33,000 worldwide

Subway tops the list with the most stores in the world, including in Singapore (79 stores in a nation with less than 300 square miles) and Germany (778 stores, including one situated inside a windmill, pictured). The most exclusive opened in June solely to New York City's Ground Zero construction workers—it's in a movable pod on top of the rising 1 World Trade Center skyscraper.
