Subway and EIPC continue to expand side by side

Subway recently announced that the European Independent Purchasing Company or EIPC, which is an independent company owned by Subway franchisees, is expecting its overall purchases made on behalf of SUBWAY franchisees across Europe to exceed £170m this year. According to information provided by Subway, the EIPC manages purchasing for around 2,000 Subway restaurants in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Spain and the Benelux countries. It is responsible, for example, for sourcing and supplying food, paper, equipment and utilities as well as managing the supply chain for stores.

With the Subway chain expanding at a rapid rate – its 1,000th restaurant was set up in the UK this year and Germany has also reached the 500-store mark – EPIC has, it says, become one of the biggest independent purchasers of food and paper in Europe. According to the EIPC, it is expecting its purchasing power to more than double over the next three years as the Subway chain continues to grow in size.

Subway Sandwiches has around 27,700 outlets in 85 countries across the globe. According to Subway, approximately 50% of new franchise licences are granted to existing franchisees. The Subway principle: sandwiches are filled in front of the customers according to their individual wishes.
