Subway trialling pre-made sandwiches

Sandwich maker Subway Australia is trialling a new store format at its University of Queensland, featuring pre-made premium sandwiches for customers to purchase.

The trial will run for six months, and is was designed with customer convenience in mind.

“Subway is focused on providing more exciting opportunities for Australians to enjoy fresh-food fast – whether that is by skipping the queue through east online-ordering or with new ‘grab ‘n’ go’ options,” Subway regional public relations manager Amanda Templeton said. 

The new offer will include a Mediterranean chicken with pesto mayo wrap, roast beef with smoky tomato chutney wrap, veggie delite with avo wrap, tuna and mayo wrap, as well as a smashed falafel with tzatziki salad, and a carved turkey with cranberry relish salad.

Subway University of Queensland franchise owner Kiran Verma said the offer would be convenient for students looking for a hassle-free, fast way to eat between classes.

“Until now, there has been limited ready-made options available for students looking for a quick bite between classes, while still eating fresh,” Verma said.

The offer comes on the heels of the brand’s new loyalty program, Subcard, which allows members to order Subway sandwiches from the brand’s app and have them pre-made – further allowing the business to cater to time-poor customers increasingly seeking pre-made meals.
