Subway Spokesman Jared, Worth $15 Million
Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, who famously lost more than 200 pounds 15 years ago by eating their food for 11 months straight, has an estimated net worth of some $15 million thanks to his work for the sandwich chain, according to the New York Daily News. Being a spokesman for Subway is the only adult job the 35-year-old Fogle has ever had, and Subway's chief marketing officer, Tony Pace, told the Daily News that Jared is, quote, "woven into the fabric of the brand." Pace said, "His story still resonates. It sounds a bit hokey, but we consider Jared an essential part of the family." Fogle is responsible for one-third to one-half of Subway's growth in the past 15 years, according to Pace, over which time sales have triple from around $3 billion in 1998 to $11.5 billion in 2011. In his position for Subway, Fogle, a married father of a young son with a second child on the way, gives interviews, goes on cross-country trips to franchises, and delivers speeches at schools and hospitals, and he also devotes time to his charity to fight child obesity, The Jared Foundation.
