John and Wendy Davies expect to open a Subway restaurant in Deniliquin mid-October.
The Deniliquin couple made the announcement to the Pastoral Times yesterday.
The sandwich franchisees are yet to receive approval from Deniliquin Council, but Mrs Davies says ‘‘there shouldn’t be any major problems’’.
Subway plans to open in the former Heritage Fabrics store in Hardinge St and is expected to create 10 jobs, which will include senior roles, according to Mrs Davies.
‘‘We are really excited,’’ she said.
‘‘We’ll have a grand opening about four weeks after we open.
‘‘People have to be patient to start with because the staff won’t know what they’re doing.’’
The Davies’ moved to Deniliquin in 2012 with the intention of enjoying semi-retirement.
Soon after Mr Davies started working at the Deniliquin Hospital and Mrs Davies at the Mobil North Service Station.
‘‘We came from the Central Coast where we had a Subway store for four years,’’ Mrs Davies said.
‘‘I also managed two Subway stores for five years and spent nine years at McDonalds.
‘‘People in Deniliquin knew we had a Subway store and kept asking us why we don’t open one here.
‘‘It’s really the Deniliquin people pushing us to open a store that made us do it.
‘‘We talked about it over Christmas before approaching Subway in February.
‘‘In April we were approved, so we chose a location and it’s all gone from there.’’
The restaurant will trade from 7.30am to 8.30pm, with longer hours throughout the Deni Ute Muster and Blues & Roots Festival weekends.
The Subway brand is famous for its made-to-order sandwiches and salads.
Sandwiches are made in front of the customer and are served on Italian, wheat and a variety of seasoned breads, which are baked daily in each restaurant.
