(Newser) – McDonald’s may be just about as American as apple pie, but when it comes to global dominance, Subway wins. The sandwich chain has passed Mickey D’s to become the world’s largest restaurant chain, the Wall Street Journal reports. At the close of 2010, Subway’s worldwide locations numbered 33,749, compared to 32,737 McDonald’s, a spokesperson says. In response, a McD’s rep says, “We remain focused on listening to and serving our customers, and are committed to being better, not just bigger.”

Sorry McDonald's, but Subway has you beat in one area.
