The business/opportunity
Our client took over this franchise approximately 6 years ago, and the business had been established a couple of years prior to that, so the business is therefore well established in this location. The business enjoys a loyal and regular customer base derived from the local residents, students and office workers which is supplemented by the high volumes of shoppers, as well as tourists and day-trippers who flock to Glasgow throughout the year. The business also benefits from the surrounding licensed premises as well as the high volumes of passing traffic on High Street, with on street parking available nearby.

Subway is one of the most recognised food franchises in the world, with the group expanding rapidly due to its popularity and success, focusing on their wide range of submarine sandwiches. The Subway brand offers an exceptional franchise opportunity, providing franchisees with the tools and knowledge to run their own successful business.

The business is run completely under management and trades 10am-7pm, 7 days a week. It is felt the business could benefit further from a more hands on owner operator who could devote more time to developing the business as well as increasing profitability further.
