Subway is set to create 3,000 jobs with its plans to treble the number of its non-traditional outlets across the UK and Ireland.

The sandwich chain franchise currently has over 1,500 stores in the UK and Ireland, with more than 150 Subway outlets in non-traditional sites including airports, bus and railway stations, business centres, convenience stores, petrol stations, cinemas, colleges, universities, department stores, motorway service stations, hotels, internet cafes, stadiums and military bases.

Trevor Haynes, Area Development Agent for the Subway chain 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 ongoing strategy over the next five years in the UK and Ireland.”
