MIAMI — Douglas Fry, currently country director of Subway Canada, has been promoted to president of North America, effective Sept. 5. He will succeed Trevor Haynes, who has led the division for the past 18 years but will step down at the end of 2023. Mr. Fry and Mr. Haynes will work together during the last few months of the year to ensure a smooth transition, Subway said.

Mr. Fry joined Subway in October 2021 and over the past two years demonstrated “tremendous success” in Canada, achieving record-breaking average unit volumes and positive traffic trends, according to the company.

He also has worked as vice president of operations and guest experience at Cara Operations (now Recipe Unlimited), corporate director of strategic sourcing/purchasing at Cara Operations, and corporate manager, business marketing and sales at Kraft Foods Group.

“Doug’s impact in Canada has been nothing short of remarkable, and I’m excited to see him continue building on our growth and progress in North America as he steps into this new role,” Mr. Haynes said. “I was honored to play a role in selecting Doug as my successor, and I’m confident that he will make a meaningful impact on the brand’s future.”

Mr. Fry’s promotion was one of several leadership announcements unveiled by Subway.
