Subway® offers comprehensive training and ongoing support to ensure its franchise owners – new and existing – are fully equipped to run their stores to their full potential.

Subway training and support
Subway training


All new Subway® franchise owners are required to attend a two-week training course at the Subway® Support Centre in Cambridge ahead of opening their own stores. This intensive training programme provides you with an overview of operating a Subway® store and running a business, including classroom and in-store sessions. On completion of the training, franchise owners are well-equipped to take the next steps in opening their own store. Similar training programmes are available for Subway® store managers as well.

Subway training


An in-depth support structure is operated through Business Development Agents who have specific experience in opening and developing Subway® franchises. There are 20 Business Development Offices in the UK and Ireland, which assist and mentor all franchise owners with site selection, leasing, design, construction, hands-on training, purchasing, operations, advertising, local store marketing and more. Your local Business Development Office also provides continued support and mentoring once you have opened a Subway® store.
