Subway, a quick service restaurant chain, today opened its first restaurant in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. Known for its fresh and delectable sandwiches and salads, Subway is already present in the state’s key urban centres comprising Bhopal, Indore and Jabalpur. Globally, Subway has more than 44,000 restaurants in 111 countries.
Abhishek Bahety, Development Agent, Madhya Pradesh, Subway India, said, ”Subway’s franchise business model coupled with its globally appealing menu offerings make it an attractive investment opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs. This is the ninth Subway restaurant in Madhya Pradesh and we hope to expand this number by exploring opportunities in other centres/cities within the state.”
The new Subway restaurant is conveniently located in Dindayal City Mall, a popular landmark in the city. Subwayrestaurants are completely owned by local franchisees who are entrepreneurs that love the opportunity to work hands-on. Training to franchisees is provided through Subway’s world headquarters in Milford, Connecticut, USA; five regional offices and various country offices across the globe. The franchisees are supported by dedicated locally-based Development Agents, and their staff.
“This development is in line with our plans to widen SUBWAY’s footprint in metro and non-metro locations including tier- II and III cities,” said Ranjit Talwar, Country Head, Subway Systems India Private Limited. Subway has a strong presence in all the major Indian metros. The sandwich chain which celebrated its 50th anniversary in August 2015 presently operates 551 restaurants in India spread across more than 70 cities.
Subway’s menu offers customers a wide array of low-fat vegetarian and non-vegetarian submarine sandwiches (subs) and salads options to choose from. The brand also has popular everyday-value offers for customers like ‘Sub of the Day’ and has recently introduced a new snacking product ‘SubWrap’, at an attractive entry level price-point. Subway has also opened fully-vegetarian restaurants in select Indian cities.
