Subway has taken the number one spot for UK sandwich sales, according to a report published by the British Sandwich Association (BSA).

Subway’s sales accounted for 60% of the total sandwich bar market, according to the BSA, selling almost £70,000 more than its closest rival, Tesco.

The report, containing data from Kantar, said that the sandwich market has maintained strong growth over the past year, and has seen further diversification in the location of sandwich outlets in places such as schools, hospitals and other institutions.
