Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Subway Felixstowe, which has been owned by our client since 2015. Due to personal circumstances, our client now needs to sell the business.

Subway is a privately held American fast food restaurant franchise that primarily sells submarine sandwiches and salads.

There is enormous scope to grow this business as our client does not carry out home delivery and this is something that could be put in place in order to increase the turnover.

Further staff should be employed as due to personal circumstances our client has cut the staff to a minimum.

• Every franchisee attends a comprehensive two week training course at the Subway®Training Centre in Cambridge. Ongoing support keeps
franchisees and staff continually informed of all the latest information and operational updates.

• Interactive online training courses available through the University of Subway® for franchisees and their staff.

• Experienced Regional Development Agents provide ongoing assistance and mentoring on site selection, leasing, operations, local store marketing and much more.

• A franchisee owned purchasing company, IPC Europe manages the purchasing and supply chain activity for all food, packaging, equipment and services in the UK, Ireland and other European countries.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.



We are advised the business is being sold as a leasehold business opportunity, with a lease until September 2026, with an annual rent of £19,000.


The business opening hours:

Monday - Saturday: 7.00 am – 11.00 pm

Sunday: 9.00 am – 9.00 pm


The business is run and managed by our client, on a part time basis with the help of 2 x part time members of staff.
