Five steps to becoming a Subway® franchise owner...

STEP ONE – Research

Firstly, research the franchise market in the UK and Ireland and look at all the options available to you. Visit the websites of the franchise associations.

Thoroughly read through the whole of this website and request a Subway® Franchise Brochure to be sent to you.


STEP TWO – Investigate

Talk to existing franchise owners to learn more about Subway®. Ask them why they chose the Subway® franchise, how long they’ve been a franchise owner, how many stores they have and how they are doing. Visit the outlets, sample the food and imagine what it would be like to join the Subway® team. Conduct your own independent research online. Attend a local seminar or contact your local Development Office to set-up a one-to-one meeting.

Once you have decided that you are interested in opening a Subway® store, complete the application form here.

Filling in an application form puts you under no obligation to purchase a franchise, or confirms your right to do so. Upon receipt, a disclosure document will be sent to you, which includes further information about Subway® franchises.


STEP FOUR – Review

Review the disclosure document with a financial advisor or solicitor. Discuss financial issues with your bank manager.


STEP FIVE – Join Subway®

It's as easy as that! Once you have finished your investigation and have secured approval to become a Subway® franchise owner, don't wait. There is a world of opportunity waiting for you once you make your decision.
