Did You Know Cleveland's Home to World's First Kosher Subway?

Posted By on Fri, Mar 11, 2011 at 12:39 PM


Subway has passed McDonald's as the world's largest restaurant chain. Fortune commemorated the noteworthy occasion by highlighting six unusual Subway's, one of which is in Cleveland.

Opened in 2006 at the Mandel Jewish Community Center, it was the world's first kosher Subway.

The franchisee, Ghazi Fadoul, had already opened 100 Subway sandwich shops in the area but decided to replace cheese with a soy-based substitute and remove ham and bacon from Subway's menu for his new venture. The Cleveland Kosher organization supervises food preparation, except for Friday afternoons and all day Saturday, when the "Closed" sign comes up, in observance of the Sabbath.
