US Military Contracting

Our engagement with the US Navy began in 2012 with a location in Djibouti, Africa, where we were tasked with opening a Subway restaurant on Camp Lemonnier – the largest and only permanent US Military Base in Africa. At the time there were no franchised restaurants in the Horn of Africa, therefore opening and operating a restaurant to the highest international brand standards presented a host of extraordinary challenges. In a place with minimal infrastructure and supply chains, we persevered and overcame obstacles to open the restaurant in only three months, a record time for any development on an overseas US Navy Base.

Today, the restaurant continues to perform beyond expectations within both the Subway brand system and the Navy Exchange (NEXCOM). It is from here that our relationship with the US Military grew, giving us the opportunity to develop multiple brands at various other locations in Africa, Asia, and the United States.
