While speaking about his outlet David told SMBstory,

My outlet at Bengaluru airport was awarded number one in unit sales worldwide in 2015 and 2019. It is in a great location, open 24/7, managed efficiently and serves only fresh food. Further, we ensure the line moves quickly. This way, we are able to sell around 1,200 subs each day

With an IT background and an MBA degree from Thunderbird School of Global Management, Arizona, David was keen on entering the food industry but had no prior experience. That is when he decided to take up the Subway franchise. Slowly and gradually, Griffith acquired the franchise for 5 more Subway outlets.
