THE first Subway of its kind in the county opens today in Redditch.

The Advertiser reported last year that two national eateries and up to 10 industrial or trade counter units were to be built on a new £3.5M Crescent Trade Park at Moons Moat Drive.

The site, which has 70 parking spaces, is home to Subway as well as Greggs.

The Subway is a Fresh Forward store - delivering "a brand-new guest experience" focusing on fresh vegetables being on display.

A spokesman from Subway said: "We are very excited to unveil our new dine-in Subway store in the heart of Redditch.

"This new store will benefit from Subway’s striking new Fresh Forward décor which is a result of a $250 million Global investment in the brand."

The spokesman added that the store is the first Fresh Forward Subway in the whole of Worcestershire.

"We simply can’t wait to unveil the new store to our new and existing customers," they said.

The store opens today Wednesday, July 11 at 11am.

Subway Moons Moat is currently recruiting.
