Subway, the foot-long and salad restaurant chain, is all set to open its first all-vegetarian outlet in Punjab. The chain which has 37,000 outlets across the globe, will be rolling out first of its kind store in Lovely Professional University, a private university in Jalandhar. The deal was signed in November 2011.
The university, run by a Hindu Mittal family, has been promoting vegetarian meals on the campus.
After Pizza Hut turning vegetarian in Gujarat, Subway is second in the league. The all-veg outlet will open on September 4.
According to the Subway spokesperson, the brand has always been sensitive to the requirements of the markets. Subway in India always operates with two separate counters for vegetarian and non-vegetarian sandwiches.
