Subway to open in Fakenham

A Subway fast food takeaway is to open in Fakenham.

It will be based inside Corder's Budgens convenience store on Wells Road.

It is being franchised to Brett and Maria Corder, who own Corder's Budgens.

Mr Corder said that building and refitting work will be done in August and that Subway is due to open in Fakenham in early September.

It will be a takeaway and there are no plans for a sit-in restaurant .

Mr Corder said: 'We will be taking on between three and five part-time staff to start with and then maybe more if it is going well, which I certainly expect will be the case.

'Subway is the fastest growing fast food brand in the world so I am expecting that it will be a big success here in Fakenham.

'I've spoken to a few people about it and got all positive feedback. I expect that it will be particularly popular with the younger generation and we will also look to do platters for businesses, which should prove popular.'

At the end of 2010, Subway surpassed McDonald's with 33,749 restaurants across the globe to McDonald's 32,737, although, in terms of revenue, McDonald's was still ahead of Subway.

Subway currently has more than 36,000 restaurants in 100 countries.

Mr Corder said: 'I think this will really take off. There are already a lot of good fast food places in Fakenham and I think having one of the world's biggest fast food brands here will only be a good thing for the town.'
