MILFORD, Conn. — Taking aim at nontraditional locations including convenience stores, airports and hospitals, sandwich shop Subway last week named Taylor Bennett vice president of nontraditional development.

Bennett has a diverse background in franchisee development, sales and legal. He previously was chief development officer at Atlanta-based HOA Brands, where he oversaw global development for the company’s multibrand restaurant portfolio. He also led the sales and development teams and was responsible for growth across seven brands at Focus Brands, Atlanta.

“Taylor brings a wealth of experience to Subway, from his background in law to working alongside franchisees to develop and grow their business,” said Mike Kappitt, Subway’s chief operating and insights officer. “As Subway continues on its transformation journey, Taylor’s understanding of franchising and how to meet guests’ needs will help solidify Subway as a leader in nontraditional innovation and drive profitability for the brand and our network of franchisees.”

Bennet said he looks forward to continuing the work started by the nontraditional team, such as piloting grab-and-go and unattended retail solutions.

Milford, Conn.-based Subway has more than 37,000 quick-service restaurants (QSRs) in more than 100 countries.
