Breaking down Subway's opening day

    Subway opened at 11:00 a.m. on the ground floor of Norris on Thursday. One of the NBN staffers just so happened to win a free cookie for paying their 2,000th dollar around 6:20 p.m. 

    North by Northwestern had some fun extrapolating this data into an infographic breaking down Subway's successful first day.

    The given

    After approximately 7.33 hours after opening, Subway made $2,000.

    The extrapolation

    If we assume each customer bought a sandwich, and use the average price of $6.00 for an order, we can calculate about how many sandwiches Subway made within these 7.33 hours.
