Subway has revealed ambitious plans to treble the number of outlets it has within “non traditional” sites such as convenience stores over the next five years.

The fresh sandwich chain currently has over 1,500 stores in the UK and Ireland, with more than 150 outlets in sites including airports, stations, convenience and forecourt stores.

Trevor Haynes, area development agent for Subway in the UK and Ireland said: “Non-traditional Subway outlets come in all shapes and sizes and can be found just about anywhere. The simple operations, alongside minimal space and equipment requirements, means that our stores are uniquely suited for non-traditional sites. 

"This form of growth will be an integral part of the chain’s development, overall expansion and on-going strategy over the next five years in the UK and Ireland.”
