Today, the SUBWAY® brand is the world’s largest restaurant chain with over 43,000 restaurants in 110 countries around the world.

IPC is an independent SUBWAY® franchisee-owned and operating purchasing cooperative. Our company negotiates the lowest costs for purchased goods and services, while improving quality, enhancing competitiveness and ensuring the best value to SUBWAY® restaurants and their customers.

IPC was started by North American SUBWAY® franchisees in September 1996. Since then, IPC has supported the launch of other IPC’s in Europe (EIPC®), Latin America and the Caribbean (LACIPC®), Australasia (IPCA®), and the Middle East (MEIPC®), which are owned by the franchisees in those regions.

IPC’s mission is to help SUBWAY® franchisees be more profitable and competitive – today and for the future. For this reason, we are proud to stand at the forefront of the GS1 US Foodservice Initiative.

By implementing these standards across our supply chain, we are reducing cost and increasing efficiencies through more accurate data and overall improved communications. Our GDSN® and data quality programs are also setting the foundation to proactively meet regulatory demands for enhanced traceability. Customer safety and brand protection are non-negotiable; therefore, product traceability is essential for the continued success of our brand.
