Subway has announced that it will close its stores across the country, from 5pm today, Monday 23 March, until further notice.
"We have taken the decision to authorise our Franchise Owners to close all their stores in the UK and Ireland," said Colin Hughes, country director UK & Ireland.
"We took this decision as we want to continue doing everything in our power to keep people safe," he said, "we believe closing the stores is the right thing to do."
"By supporting social distancing, we can help protect not just our loyal guests, dedicated Franchise Owners and Sandwich Artist, but the wider communities they serve.
Hughes said that locally, over today and tomorrow, Franchise Owners will be using up their fresh ingredients to donate Subs to local community groups and emergency workers, wherever possible.
"We’ll be back with you as soon as we can," he concluded.
