Top 50 Indie Sewell on the go has opened its first Subway franchise, at South Cave service station in Yorkshire, adding to the convenience offer at the site.

The site, which reopened in November after a £1.5m extension, is a 24-hour one stop shop for all grocery and fuel needs.

The Subway, which opens from early morning to late in the evening, sold more than 1,500 sandwiches in the first week.

The extension at South Cave, which is on the M62 corridor, has created 15 jobs, with five in the main store and a further 10 at Subway, in addition to existing staff.

Sewell on the go managing director Patrick Sewell said: “We are delighted Subway is now open at South Cave.

“It adds extra value to the convenience offer we already provide, which also includes Costa coffee.

“We hope to be able to announce more Subways in other Sewell on the go stores later in the year.

“South Cave is in the ideal location to pick up everything you need for your journey, or call in on your way to or from work.”

Sewell on the go has 12 fuel and convenience stores in the North East serving more than four million customers a year.
