Customers slip and fall at Subway restaurants and other fast food restaurants at an alarming frequency.

This could be a function of two main factors:  the sheer number of customers that walk within the store on a daily basis and the self-serve soda fountain machines located within the stor

Subway is the fastest growing franchises in the world with 44,882 restaurants in 112 countries as of December 27, 2016. The United States alone has 26,646 stores. It is the largest single-brand restaurant chain and the largest restaurant operator in the world.

Most of the slip and falls or falls on liquid substances cases I've encountered against Subway or other fast food restaurants include other customers being careless and spilling soda pop or other drinks on the tiled floors of the restaurant.  Oftentimes, employees are seen frequently mopping the area. This can lead to a lack of warning signs upon mopping for other customers or poor placement of warning cones or signs.  I've encountered both of those types of cases.

I've rarely seen a Subway employee mopping the floor, while you can usually see plenty of McDonald's employees who appear to have "floor cleanup" duties on a regular basis.

When it comes to parking lot safety, Subway has much fewer than a McDonald's.  Many Subway restaurants operate out of gas stations or other multi-tenant buildings.  This usually means that if you fall inside a Subway parking lot area, the owners are not that Subway restaurant owners.  See Shaw Law Office for help in determining who owns or was required to maintain the land at or near any particular Subway restaurant.
