Subway opens 500th non-traditional store

The company is increasingly looking to open stores in locations such as petrol forecourts, convenience stores, hospitals, transport hubs, universities and colleges. The brand already has partnerships with a number of operators including Welcome Break, Euro Garages, Blakemore, Applegreen and Sodexo.

The news comes as Subway joins the line-up of exhibitors at the National Convenience Show at Birmingham’s NEC this week.

Alice Chalmers, national accounts manager for Subway UK and Ireland, said: “As a key player in the convenience sector, now with over 500 stores in non-traditional locations, the NCS provides the perfect platform to showcase the partnership opportunities available with the Subway brand.  

“As the UK and Ireland’s largest specialist sandwich provider, it is vital for the Subway brand to lead the way in the convenience retail sector.“

The news follows Subway’s recent announcement that it now has 2,000 stores in the UK & Ireland.
