Growth in passenger numbers continued at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) during March as passenger numbers rose by 7% compared to March 2017.
Today, Liverpool John Lennon Airport officially welcomed another brand name to the terminal.
The SUBWAY® chain is the latest food store to open its doors at LJLA and is renowned for its freshly prepared baguettes known as ‘Subs’ which are made to order in front of the customer.
Airport and Subway Management celebrated the official opening along with passengers and employees. The new addition to LJLA’s retail portfolio follows hot on the heels of GO Pizza, Bo Shoes and Antler which arrived just in time for the beginning of the European Capital of Culture celebrations.
Andrew Nicholls, Property Manager at LJLA, commented: “We are delighted that SUBWAY® has joined the growing list of retailers represented at LJLA. The unit is situated landside, on Level 1, before security control and is already proving to be extremely popular as many passengers, visitors and employees sample the freshly prepared sandwiches.”
The store at LJLA is the 31st store for multi-unit franchisee Stephen Richards. Stephen is also the Development Agent for the region and is responsible for the success of the SUBWAY® chain in Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside and the Isle of Man. This latest SUBWAY® store brings the total number of outlets in the North to 155.
Stephen, added: “I am thrilled to have opened this latest SUBWAY® store at JLA. Fresh, great tasting food is the perfect way for excited travellers to get their holidays off to a flying start.
As the world’s largest sandwich franchise, the brand is also recognisable and trusted by many international visitors using the Airport.
The strap line “above us only sky”, taken from the lyrics “Imagine”, fits perfectly for the SUBWAY® chain concerning this development! The team look forward to serving travellers their favourite Subs, made just the way they like them.”
The SUBWAY® chain offers a wide range of Subs, including a unique Under 6 gram of fat range – for those who want to eat low fat without sacrificing great taste.
