I can't name one franchisee that I know that's currently happy with their store," a franchisee from a Southern state said. "My store is currently 40% down in profits this year ... We are all jumping through hoops for Subway corporate."

“I have sadly watched my peers close their doors only to see Subway resell their investment to others with no benefit to them," one franchisee told Business Insider. "It is inevitable that I will do the same in the near future."

I believe that Subway was more interested in the opening of stores," a former corporate employee said. "That is where they made the most money — the franchise fee."

The sandwich chain's US store count fell by 909, losing almost three times as many locations as the year before. One franchisee estimated that up to one-third of Subway's locations could be unprofitable, citing internal conversations and national sales numbers.

I will miss very much my $4.99 foot long Veggie Delight sub if Subway goes bye bye.
