Subway opens first UK store in partnership with Applegreen

Subway and Ireland's leading independent forecourt retailer, Applegreen, have opened their first UK store partnership.

The new sandwich shop opened its doors for the first time in one of Applegreen's service stations in Uckfield, East Sussex, UK. Subway currently has over 1,600 stores across the UK and Ireland and more than 300 open or in development in non-traditional locations. This new partnership with Applegreen coincides with the launch of the new Applegreen brand design.

Adrian Grimes, Head of Food for Applegreen commented: "The opening of our first UK Subway store and the launch of the new Applegreen brand design in the UK is an exciting step for the Applegreen and the Subway brand partnership. Applegreen is well known for providing good value, high quality food and coffee on the go. The Applegreen food team is constantly looking for innovative solutions to help our busy customers through their day. Therefore, with its convenient, fresh approach, a Subway store is a natural complement to our existing forecourt offer."

Trevor Haynes, Area Development Manager of Subway in Ireland, said: "This is a very exciting time for our brand, with a great deal of demand for our stores on forecourts and within convenience stores in the UK and Ireland."
