Subway, an American fast-food restaurant, has opened its second outlet in Nairobi.
The first one was opened at the Junction mall in September last year.
“We expect this one to do well. Typically city centre are our busiest stores with the core client being people looking for a quick meal,” Mr Christopher Bak, a director at Liberty Eagle Holdings, the local Subway franchise holder, told the Nation earlier this week.
According to the website, Subway, with world headquarters in Milford, Connecticut, operates 41,579 stores in 104 countries.
There are about 10 staff at the new outlet on Kenyatta Avenue in Nairobi, with most of them having worked at the Junction branch first.
Breads that are freshly baked daily, sandwiches, salads, flatizzas (flat-bread pizza), chips, cookies and drinks are on the menu.
Customers get to choose their own toppings and sauces as the meal is prepared behind the counter.
Depending on the order, a meal takes an average of 3-5mins to prepare. For those having a take-away meal, the restaurant offers reusable bags.
“We’re on a journey to make our stores and operations as environmentally and socially responsible as possible.
“This demonstrates our on-going efforts to increase the recycled content, recyclability, degradability and compostability of our packaging,” a statement on the website says.
