They survive because those chains have several outlets that make a loss but most their outlets make a profit.
When I am at Lima airport, the Mac and the pizza joint are always busy but again I have seen few people at Subway.
They should add more fat and calories to their sándwiches. Probably that will it make more attractive for most Peruvians.
When I flew for an airline in Ireland, I often had to fly to Cork Airport and had a long turnaround so I sneeked into Subways because they gave airport staff a discount but the first time I visted Subways, it appeared strange to me. You have to select the bread you want, the size, then what you want on it and then sauces.
I am used to take a fully prepared sándwich off the shelf at a gasstation or the airport deli.
