A businessman at the age of seventeen
Fred DeLuca was an ambitious young man who was pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor and was looking for a way to earn enough money to pay his university tuition fees. He found a solution when talking to a family friend who suggested that he open a store that sells Marine Cast sandwiches.
He was offered by his friend Dr. Peter Bock, to be his partner in the restaurant through a $ 1,000 loan he provided to him, to witness the emergence of a business relationship that will change the parameters of the food sector.
In the year 1965 the first store opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in the United States. Then Fred DeLuca and Peter Buck set a goal of opening 32 restaurants within 10 years. Unique quickly learned the basics of business management, such as the importance of good service, securing high quality products, providing the best customer service, with low raw material costs and finding good locations. These early foundations continue to serve as the basis for successful Subway restaurants around the world.
