The first Subway restaurant at Fort Hood, Texas, opened March 12, at the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) Mega Food Court, giving soldiers on post a new dining option. One of the main reasons for bringing in the branded concept is Subway’s commitment to offering healthy options.
“It’s an awesome brand, and it's a healthy brand,” said Paula Gunderson, general manager of the Fort Hood Exchange. “It helps them with their mission and with navigating health options to perform better.”
At the opening, Subway spokesman Jared Fogle met said. “It’s a lot easier to watch what you eat.”

Subway, which offers healthy options at fast-food speeds and prices, has 133 restaurants on military installations worldwide, and a long-standing relationship with AAFES. ...Read more BRANDING: FORT HOOD OPENS NEW SUBWAY AT AAFES FOOD COURT ...
