Echo: New sandwich shop will create six jobs New sandwich shop will create six jobs

A SANDWICH chain has revealed it is opening a new store on Canvey.

Subway is creating six new jobs with the planned branch in Furtherwick Road.

Bosses haven’t revealed the exact opening date, but said it would be some time next month and work on the building is set to start soon.

Residents have welcomed the news and said it would bring something new to Canvey.

Although Subway has also not revealed the exact location of the store, it is believed it will be next to a 99p shop.

Norman Smith, Castle Point councillor responsible for regeneration, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to see an empty shop being used.

“I’m really encouraged the fact there’s going to be six new jobs and it’s a reputable company coming in. If one comes in, then you find others will follow.

“As the regeneration of Canvey moves on people are realising things are happening.”

Peter May, Castle Point councillor for Canvey central, said it was good news for youngsters.

He said: “I know my son will enjoy a Subway. Maybe I will have to try it myself.”

Bob Dalgarno, development agent for Subway in Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, said the chain had been looking to open on Canvey for a while.

He said: “We are delighted to be opening a new Subway store on Canvey.

“The premises in Futherwick Road presented us with the perfect location for our new store.

“We are hoping to be opening some time in March and the new Subway store will create around six full and part-time jobs for the town.”

I wouldn't eat that stuff if you paid me.

For example, the dictionary describes steak as: "high-quality beef taken from the hindquarters of the animal, typically cut into thick slices that are cooked by grilling or frying."

Subway describe steak as: "Formed meat" and refuse to publish the ingredients (although it certainly contains soya and wheat products as listed on their allergen chart).

No a bad location for a new outlet, I'm surprised one has not opened there before now. Big population with not a lot of options.

There is already a very lovely sandwich shop near the bingo hall, why are the council trying to put out if business the small independent shops. I won't use the subway. Full support to local shops not big chains

Hope they don't employ the local bogie eaters, as hygiene has to be top of the list.

I used to walk past one every day in City Road and the same fillings were in the window a week along with dead flies and wasps in summer. Utter junk

I personally love a subway. Far better than McD's imo.
Their mega breakfast sub is my favourite. Be nice being able to get down there on a weekend morning and grab one, nothing better than a unhealthy breakfast for treating a hangover
But Clarke's sandwich bar is better value and run by a friendly bunch (although subway don't charge the earlier ridiculous claim of £9), just in the wrong place for the general passing trade.
