Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this franchise Subway store. The store was established by our client in October 2014. Our client put a lot of investment into the store to bring it up to franchise standards. The owner is also looking to sell their store on Albert Road in Portsmouth reference 14090 i, due to the desire to focus on other business opportunities.
Subway is part of the large franchise that has over 2,400 locations in the UK and Ireland and more than 44,000 in 110 different countries. The franchise was first established in Connecticut in 1965 and has expanded ever since. The business specialises in nutritious made to order submarine sandwiches for all the family. The popular menu includes 6inch and 12inch sandwiches, salads, breakfasts, nachos, toasties, cookies, as well as children’s meals and hot and cold drinks.
The store generated a turnover of over £274,382 as of the 2017 accounts, with a gross profit of 72%. This is a very healthy turnover with room to increase this figure. We feel that the purchaser could look to offer deliveries to the local area to allow for more income. Subway platters should be promoted in the two busy locations, focusing on offices and other local businesses. As of August 2017, the store has increased its turnover by £1,700 per week with Just Eat.
The purchaser will be well supported by the Subway brand. All franchisee’s attend a comprehensive two-week training course and are kept regularly updated with the latest information and operational updates. Regional development agents will also pay visits to the store to allow for advice on how to make the most of the stores. The purchaser will receive a solid support network.
The store is in a prime location with all year-round trade. The Subway brand is well-known all across the UK and so we feel there will be no shortage of customers.
