"The amount that I have to reinvest in my business and feed my family is more like $600,000 of that $6.3 million," Fleming said. "So by the time I feed my family I have maybe $400,000 left over to invest in new locations, upgrade my locations..."

The remainder -- $200k -- sure would buy a lot of Subway sandwiches.

Fleming's office did not immediately return TPM's request for further comment.
