Subway standardizes payments across its stores and geographic footprint

For global QSRs like Subway, standardizing payment methods across all franchisees and all countries it operates in is a challenge. 

Sandwiched between laws and regulations, Subway has had to find different payment solutions depending on what country its restaurants are based in. This could be both time consuming and expensive.

“We utilized single, custom integrations with local acquirers,” said Subway’s CTO Dave Blankenship. “This had the potential to become very costly given Subway’s footprint.” 

Subway, which is the largest restaurant chain in the world, has looked for ways to enable easier payment processes before. In early 2019, the franchise partnered with payments platform Adyen to provide omnichannel payments. Subway’s goal was to improve the payment process across locations.
