SUBWAY makes it to the number one spot in the UK

The SUBWAY franchise has announced that a recent report published by the British Sandwich Association has revealed that SUBWAY has made it to the number one spot in the UK for sandwich sales.

According to this report, the industry is worth around £5 billion and the SUBWAY Chain has achieved record industry sales figures with sandwich sales of £300m - nearly double that of Tesco which came in second.

Kevin Graham, the SUBWAY® Chain’s European Director, commented on this achievement saying, “We are delighted to have been ranked number one by this report in the UK. This is the first time the SUBWAY® Chain has held this position in the UK and it further underlines the strength of the company’s brand, product and franchise system. It is also testament to our entrepreneurial and outstanding franchisees. Our aim is to be the World’s favourite place to eat fresh and this is yet another major milestone for us.”

The SUBWAY chain was co-founded by Fred DeLuca and Dr Peter Buck in 1965. Since then it has developed into one of the world’s largest submarine sandwich franchises with over 29,000 locations in 86 countries. Its network in the UK and Ireland currently comprises over 1,250 locations. (kb)
