Subway has won the IGD food-to-go operator of the year award for the second year running.

The business was voted by consumers as their favourite on-the-go foodservice provider, with one of the reasons being the company’s response to changing shopper needs.

Subway said the achievement reinforced demand from customers for more affordable quality and healthier choices.

“We are so proud to win this award again for a consecutive year,” said Colin Hughes, country director for Subway UK and Ireland.

“It’s a fantastic achievement for the brand, made even more special by the fact that it is voted for by the people that matter most to us, our guests. We couldn’t be more thrilled for this recognition.”

Other shortlisted brands were Burger King, Greggs, KFC, McDonald’s, Starbucks and Pret A Manger.
