The SUBWAY® chain, makers of the world famous Sub and one of the fastest growing retailers in the North West, is please to announce the opening next month of a second store at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. The airport is now one of the UK’s top 10 busiest Airports and was the first in the North West region to open a SUBWAY® store.
The new store located on the airside side of the main customer terminal, is ideal for passengers wanting to take a tasty Sub on to their flight. This latest SUBWAY® store will open following the success of the first airport store in May 2008 – which now serves thousands of customers every week.
Opening on Monday 14th June, the new store at Liverpool John Lennon Airport is the 33rd 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.
Stephen comments on the exciting airport development: “I am thrilled to be opening the second SUBWAY® store at John Lennon Airport. 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 for the many international visitors using the airport.”
Rob Agnew, Head of Retail for Peel Airports added, “Subway has been a great hit here with both passengers and staff and its fantastic news that this global brand has seen at first hand the success of the airport and shares our optimism going forward by opening this additional unit in the coming weeks.”
The SUBWAY® chain offers a wide range of Subs, including a unique low fat range – for those who want to eat low fat without sacrificing great taste.
