Paramus, NJ – The International Franchise Expo (IFE) will welcome the founder of Subway restaurant, Fred DeLuca, to kick off the industry’s premier annual event. DeLuca will share personal remarks during the IFE’s opening ceremony that begins at 9:50 a.m. June 20 at the Javits Center in NYC.

“We are elated to have Fred Deluca as part of the IFE this year,” said Tom Portesy, President and CEO of MFV Expositions, producers of the show. “Fred brings an incredible perspective on franchising, one which he is uniquely qualified to offer. We are extremely grateful Fred agreed to participate and look forward to his contribution to opening ceremonies along with the thousands of current and future entrepreneurs from across the United States and from around the world who will join us.”

The billionaire cofounder of the Subway sandwich restaurant chain was born in 1948 in New York City. At the age of 17, DeLuca created his first sandwich store after an idea came to him from a family friend. He began this venture to raise funds for college where he wanted to study medicine, but his restaurants eventually took over his life. Subway now has 39,000 locations in 101 countries and was deemed the fastest growing franchise in the world.

More than 400 franchise brands will be on display for the public at the 22nd Annual IFE that is sponsored by International Franchise Association. The three-day show draws thousands of entrepreneurs to the Javits Center in New York City seeking franchise opportunities. Taking place June 20 -22, prospective business owners, the top franchise brands and current franchisees have the rare opportunity to meet face-to-face with one another.

In addition to the 400+ brands, the IFE offers the most comprehensive conference on franchising, including more than 70 free seminars along with serious in-depth symposiums. This is a one of a kind opportunity to meet entrepreneurs from the United States and more than 90 countries from around the world.
