MIAMI — The Subway restaurant chain on Wednesday completed the conversion of its restaurants in North America to Coca-Cola products from PepsiCo products. PepsiCo had been Subway’s lead beverage supplier since the mid-1970s.

The conversion was completed on schedule and involved switching more than 12,800 Subway restaurants to Coca-Cola as well as installing fountain equipment in all new restaurant openings. There are now more than 19,500 Subway restaurants in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico offering a range of Coca-Cola products. Worldwide, more than 23,000 Subway restaurants now serve Coke products.

"Now that the conversion is complete, we are looking forward to working with the Coca-Cola team to reduce costs and drive increased franchisee sales and profit through a number of defined initiatives," said Dennis Clabby, vice-president of purchasing for the Independent Purchasing Cooperative, Inc. "Coca-Cola has done a great job at becoming an integral partner to Subway worldwide."
