“I look forward to working with the team to drive the Subway brand forward by amplifying our presence across Canada, fostering authentic, mutually beneficial relations with franchisees and celebrating our valued guests.”
His appointment comes after Douglas Fry’s elevation to the position of North American president of Subway earlier this year.
Fry said: “It is with great excitement that we welcome Courtney to Subway Canada.
“Working alongside an incredible Canadian management team, I am confident that Courtney’s exceptional leadership, deep industry knowledge and dedication to supporting franchisees will propel our brand to new heights as we strive to make Subway restaurants the preferred destination to eat, drink and work.”
In October 2023, Subway opened its second dual headquarters in Shelton, Connecticut, US.
The new global dual headquarters is located at 1 Corporate Drive, an office building within RD Scintos’ Enterprise Corporate Park in Shelton’s business district.
It is ten miles away from Subway’s former Milford office, providing easy access to both main and alternative roadways.
