Property description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Subway London Street Norwich. This Subway was opened by our client in 2008, due to other business opportunities our client is now relucatantly looking to sell this profitable business, we feel this would be a great investment for an owner operator, as our client runs the business remotely.

Since Fred DeLuca opened his first submarine sandwich store in Connecticut, usa in 1965, Subway has grown into a multi-billion-pound business. The sale of this store gives someone the opportunity to become part of that.

Over the many years it has been operating, the chain has finely tuned and developed its franchise system. The system is both efficient and effective, proving itself time and time again throughout the world.

One of the key strengths behind the success of Subway is the solid support network and robust processes in operation.

There is scope to develop the store further, as the current owner has drawn up plans to remodel the shop under a full refurbishment campaign that will bring in more eat in seating.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
