How To Reheat Subway
Subway is a fast-food restaurant that has been around for over 50 years. It was founded by Fred DeLuca and Peter Buck, who wanted to create the perfect sandwich. They came up with the idea of using bread as their main ingredient because it would be easy to transport and could hold all the ingredients they needed. The first store opened in 1965 in New York City’s Greenwich Village neighborhood. Since then, there have been thousands of stores worldwide. In fact, you can find them almost anywhere!
