Subway, the leading sandwich chain retailer, has opened its first UK store in partnership with Ireland’s leading independent forecourt retailer, Applegreen.  

The store, in Uckfield, East Sussex, follows on from the two companies’ first joint venture in Ireland in March.     

The Uckfield site also marks a redesign for Applegreen.

Adrian Grimes, head of food for Applegreen said: “The opening of the first UK Subway store and the launch of the new Applegreen brand design in the UK is an exciting step for the Applegreen and the Subway brand partnership.
