Milford, Conn. -- Sandwich mega-chain Subway said Friday that it has set 2012 development goals of 1,200 North American locations and, toward that end, said a large contingent of company representatives will be in attendance at the International Council of Shopping Centers’ RECon event in Las Vegas, May 20-23.
"More than 100 Subway developers, field staff and leasing specialists from all across North America will be attending the event," said Chris Kan, training and business promotion specialist for Subway Real Estate. "We will be looking for sites and ready to make deals."
Subway said it is exploring opportunities in traditional shopping centers, mall and freestanding locations as well as non-traditional venues such as hospitals, colleges, sports arenas and airports.
Since January, Subway has opened nearly 900 new stores in 58 countries, 42 U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces.
