Sky News also identified Bain Capital, TPG and TDR Capital as interested in buying the sandwich chain. Those firms declined to comment.

In early February, Subway said 2022 was a "record-setting year" for the company, with its global same-store sales posting a rise of over 9% year-over-year. North American same-store sales saw growth of nearly 8% in the same time frame, the company also said.

Late last week, the company unveiled a second headquarters. The new one is located in Miami, Florida, while the other remains in Connecticut, the state where Fred DeLuca and Dr. Peter Buck started the chain.
The chain, whose beginnings date back to 1965, has been led by CEO John Chidsey since late 2019.
