A petrol station in Manchester is set to be converted to a Subway “drive-thru”. Made to Order, a UK Subway franchisee with more than 30 restaurants in the North West of England is to run the site, which will open later this year in Trafford Park. The 1,300sq ft site is one of few drive-thru formats that trade in the UK – the world’s biggest sandwich bar operator opened its first in this country in 2007 in Wakefield, Yorkshire. Made to Order has signed a 15-year lease with Property developer Black Horse, with finance for the project provided by the Co-operative Bank. More than 33,000 stores in over 90 countries now operate under the Subway franchise. The concept was founded by Fred De Luca in 1965 in the US.
