Subway announced its latest odds on the next fast food chain to be named the largest in terms of units in 2012 with Subway expected to just barely nudge McDonald’s out of the number one spot.  Subway had odds of +150, which would pay out $15 for every $10 bet.  McDonald’s came in with +200 odds, paying $20 for every $10 bet.

Bookmaker.comis known for being the best high stakes online sportsbook in the world, and with tech savvy and Apple followers in mind, Risk Manager Tony Harvey and his team of oddsmakers have decided to lay out the chances on whether Subway can hold its title of the largest fast food chain or will one of its competitors take the title.

Subway is one of the fastest growing franchises in the world with approximately 34,187 restaurants in 95 countries/territories as of March, 2011.  It should be noted that Yum Brands, parent company to Taco Bell and KFC, is the largest multi-restaurant operator. 

Coffee aficionados will note that Starbucks would pay $60 for every $10 bet.

Here is what the odds look like:

MCDONALD’S +200 (33.30%)
DUNKIN’ BRANDS INC. +1000 (9.10%)
STARBUCKS CORP +600 (14.30%)
