A statement from Subway said: “The measures include new directional signage to support social distancing, enhanced hygiene practices and the supply of PPE to protect Sandwich Artists™, guests and delivery drivers. Stores will also open with a reduced menu, operating with a selected menu of favourites, with the full menu being introduced as and when we can.
“These procedures will ensure our Franchise Owners are able to operate and trade responsibly and have been tested in a small number of stores that have remained open to support and serve key workers and hospital staff.”
NHS and key workers in the UK receive 25 per cent discount in Subway throughout May.
