The SUBWAY® chain to create over 7,000 jobs by 2010
09 Feb 2009
The SUBWAY® chain, the leading sandwich provider in the UK and Ireland, has announced that over 7,000 jobs will be created in less than two years. The chain, which currently has over 1,400 stores owned by 660 franchisees, plans to open another 600 stores by the end of 2010 - which will see an investment of over £60 million across the UK and Ireland.
The company, a franchised business, is recognised for its rapid growth and robust development system, which has been instrumental in the company's success to-date.
Neil Black, Development Agent for the SUBWAY® chain said: "The chain has expanded from just 25 stores in 2000 to over 1,400 stores today. In the last month there have been 22 new SUBWAY® stores opened in the UK and Ireland, creating 264 jobs and seeing an investment of over £2 million. We are delighted with the success we've achieved and that we are going to be able to provide a further 7,000 jobs. The SUBWAY® chain has already brought significant investment and job creation to the UK and Ireland, creating over 16,000 jobs to-date."
The SUBWAY® chain prides itself on the fact it gives its customers what they want - great value sandwiches made just the way they want, fresh in front of them. The company attributes much of its success in the UK and Ireland to offering its customers a choice of great tasting Sub sandwiches, both low fat and indulgent. The chain has also recently improved its in-store nutrition information to allow customers to make an informed choice from the wide range of Subs.
The SUBWAY® chain is continuing to expand at a phenomenal rate, with an average of five stores opening in the UK and Ireland every week, and more than 30,000 stores now open in over 87 countries worldwide.
