The Subway chain has announced that 3,000 jobs will be created in the next five years as part of its plans to treble the number of non-traditional outlets across the UK and Ireland.
Currently the chain has more than 1,500 stores in the UK and Ireland, with more than 150 Subway outlets in non-traditional sites including petrol stations, airports, bus and railway stations, business centres, convenience stores, cinemas, colleges, universities, department stores, motorway service stations, hotels, internet cafes, stadia and military bases.
Trevor Haynes, area development agent for the Subway chain in the UK and Ireland, said: “Non-traditional Subway outlets come in all shapes and sizes and can be found just about anywhere. The simple operations, alongside minimal space and equipment requirements, means that our stores are uniquely suited for non-traditional sites. This form of growth will be an integral part of the chain’s development, overall expansion and on-going strategy over the next five years in the UK and Ireland.”
