The Remaining Kosher Subway Restaurants in the U.S.

UPDATED 2017: Originally published in 2011


Not long ago I compiled a list of Kosher Subway Restaurants across the U.S., which in its heyday numbered 12 across the country, 5 alone in the NYC metro area.

Today, all 5 of the NYC area Kosher Subways are closed and only a total of 2 remain open nationally.

I was recently interviewed by the Jewish Week discussing my (3 main) reasons why I believed the deli sandwich chain did not do well in NY.

Here are the remaining 2 Kosher Subway restaurants that have thrived (not necessarily in places you’d expect), both inside JCCs (although the one inside the Rockville JCC closed as well):

  • Cleveland, OH – JCC 26001 South Woodland Rd., Beachwood
  • Los Angeles, CA – 8948 W. Pico Blvd, Los Angeles
  • Miami, FL – JCC 18900 Northeast 25th Ave, North Miami Beach
  • Baltimore, MD – 706 Reisterstown Rd., Baltimore
  • Rockville, MD – JCC 6125 Montrose Rd., Rockville

Now I’m left wondering… what will be the next kosher restaurant fad to sweep the country and will it last?

Surely, the Kosher Subway chain experiment is an eye-opening lesson to would be restauranteurs.
