Subway reopens 600 UK branches
Sandwich retailer Subway has embarked on phased reopening of 600 stores across the UK.
Equating to a quarter of Subway’s store portfolio, the shops will offer a takeaway service as well as free delivery on orders over £10 through Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
The company has implemented a range of new health and safety measures to protect customers and staff throughout the coronavirus outbreak. Measures include new fixtures, directional signage, enhanced hygiene procedures and PPE.
Colin Hughes, country director for Subway UK and Ireland, said: “Everybody in the Subway family and the wider communities they serve has shown great resilience in adapting to these challenging times that we currently find ourselves in.
“We are extremely grateful for their ongoing support in anticipation of this next phase of our gradual reopening, which will enable us to continue to serve our communities and frontline workers who have helped us all so much in recent weeks.
“We have slowly and safely introduced a new store opening framework that will be rolling out across stores to protect guests, our teams, delivery drivers and our suppliers.
“The weeks and months ahead will continue to be challenging for everyone and Subway will play its part in supporting the new normal, whatever that may look and feel like.”
