Come this summer lovers of footlong sandwiches will be heading in a new direction.
Owner of Haliburton’s Subway restaurant Prakashkumar Shah confirmed to the Haliburton Echo that the franchise is moving to 177 Highland Street where Henwood’s Variety store used to be located.
The location which was most recently a dollar store has sat empty for a number of months.
The decision to move was made based on the size available at the new location said Shah. The franchisee hopes to be open at the new spot by the end of July.
Before that he plans on doing some work on the building.
Once opened the new Subway restaurant will be larger in size offer an open concept feel and more seating including couches.
“It will be a very beautiful store” he said. “It will be totally new decor.”
Shah has owned the Subway restaurant in Haliburton since 2006 and owns a number of other franchises.
Shah says business at Subway has been good and he is hoping that continues at the new location.
