Subway, an American Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) with over 44,000 restaurants worldwide, is announcing the launch of its comprehensive national re-franchising program and entering into partnership with business entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka.

With the brand now established, Subway Sri Lanka has received a growing demand from entrepreneurs that are looking at owning and operating a Subway restaurant. The focus from Subway is to work with new franchisees across all major cities across the country.

“We’re blown away with the enthusiasm for our brand in Colombo and are thrilled to be able to grow the Subway brand on a national scale,” said Operations Manager Sri Lanka Roshan Chaminda.  “We have already successfully franchised locations on the Southern expressway and at Shangri La mall. Re-franchise dynamics gives us the ability to find new owners that share our passion for the concept, while providing them with guidance to make their new franchise a success.”  

“We’re confident that by marrying the strong brand and unique concept of Subway with our experience in the industry, we’ll be able to roll out a successful partnership and win-win for all concerned.”

Subway has been operating in Sri Lanka since August 2014 with its first store in Colombo 3. There are now seven stores in operation in Colombo 3, Fort, Mt. Lavinia and Rajagiriya. Subway opened three Franchisee locations in 2019 with One Galle Face Mall and two locations on the Southern Expressway.

Subway is an American Quick Service Restaurant franchise that primarily sells submarine sandwiches and salads. Currently, Subway is the largest single-brand restaurant chain and the largest restaurant operator globally. Customers are encouraged to design their own submarine filling, complete with unlimited toppings with fresh locally and internationally sourced ingredients. With its innovative healthy products, Subway is revolutionising Sri Lanka’s food industry.
