Sandwich supplier FooGo has revealed plans for a chain of 40 eat-in sandwich bars.
The first of the sandwich and café bars was opened in Lincoln in October. The company will target other historic cathedral and market towns as the roll-out gets under way, it said.
The new eat-in or takeaway bars will sell sandwiches, salads and hot goods, including quiches, soup, cakes, muffins and pies.
Emma Fieldsends, business development manager, told British Baker: "The shops aim to use as many locally produced products as possible. Our flour is from just down the road in Lincolnshire."
FooGo already has a turnover of £15m and makes over 1,000 deliveries a week to 250 sites. It supplies snacks to WH Smith’s, 60 Superdrug outlets and forecourts.
Its sandwiches and snacks are made with organic and local produce, while packaging is also biodegradable.
