Please quote reference B05947
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a very well established Subway Franchise.
The business was established by our client over 10 years ago who is now looking to sell the franchise to now retire.
As you can see from the attached photos, the business has undergone a complete refurbishment with Subways new lime green/white contemporary brand design been installed. Our client advises this was just completed in February 2020 at a cost of £105,000.
Any new owner will be able to take full advantage this recent refurbishment and have no need to make any large investment for the next 10 years.
The Subway brand is world famous for its consistent quality from the level of service, sandwich ingredients/choices and drinks. The first Subway opened in the U.K. in 1996 and since expanded at an exceptional rate which continues to expand. The UK head office is based in Cambridge, offering support on R & D, Lessing, customer services, training and franchisee services.
Subway has invested heavily in developing their existing menu options by adding more health conscious salads, wraps, plant based options and smaller toasted bites which is proven very successful.
Our client informs us he works very little within the business and advises any new owner working more hours would instantly make savings in the labour costs.
We are advised the business attracts a very loyal mix of customer types from nearby office workers, students, shop workers as well as family’s coming to the town to shop.
The business has been quick to react to forced closing due to Covid and added a new delivery service through Just Eat which is proving very popular and now as the store is fully open, the delivery side has remained strong, continuing to boost the weekly sales.
Very rarely do new Subway deigned franchises of this standard come onto the open market and we therefore recommend very early viewings to avoid disappointment.
Available upon further request.
