Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Subway, Bishops Stortford, which was established by our client in 2013.

Our client is now looking to sell as they do not live in the location and finding the travelling difficult as they also have poor health.

Since Fred DeLuca opened his first submarine sandwich store in Connecticut, USA in 1965, the Subway® brand has grown into a multi-billion-pound business.

Over the many years it has been operating, the chain has finely tuned and developed its franchise system. The system is both efficient and effective, proving itself time and time again throughout the world.

One of the key strengths behind the success of the Subway® brand is the solid support network and robust processes in operation.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
