MP’s cham­pion sarnie with a health mes­sage

Boris: The trick is lots of veg­eta­bles

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

IT ap­peared Boris Johnson had a change of ca­reer on one visit to Uxbridge, af­ter he was spot­ted serv­ing sandwiches to cus­tomers!

He tested his culi­nary skills and made, by his own ad­mis­sion, a ‘cham­pion’ sand­wich.

Per­haps Boris is looking for new hob­bies to fill up his time when his term as Mayor comes to an end this week, af­ter he also proved he has green fin­gers at a new pub­lic gar­den in the town.

He spent an af­ter­noon at fast food sand­wich store Sub­way, greeted by head of brand Greg Madi­gan, Uxbridge store fran­chisee Chris Seymour and Greater Lon­don re­gional field man­ager Rusty Warren.

The Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP, whilst mak­ing his very own sub, said: “It’s a cham­pion sand­wich. Its very good; the trick is slightly toast­ing and lots of veg­eta­bles.

“The Sub­way brand has great health mes­sages which you should be telling every­one about.”

The visit, on Fri­day April 22 saw Boris dis­cuss key is­sues af­fect­ing the food ser­vice in­dus­try, the Sub­way brand’s pos­i­tive eco­nomic con­tri­bu­tion to the UK, its lead­ing part­ner­ship re­la­tion­ship with the gov­ern­ment’s Pub­lic Health Re­spon­si­bil­ity Deal, and how the fran­chise is work­ing with the lo­cal com­mu­nity to pro­mote busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties in Uxbridge.

Boris’ visit was part of an on­go­ing pro­gramme of MP con­stituency en­gage­ment.

The Sub­way brand in­vites MPs to visit their lo­cal stores to meet the fran­chisee who owns and op­er­ates the store, the em­ploy­ees, and the ways that the brand leads the Quick Ser­vice Restau­rant sec­tor in its ‘com­mit­ment to achiev­ing pub­lic health pol­icy ob­jec­tives’.

Mr Madi­gan said: “It is im­por­tant to in­form MPs about both the Sub­way brand’s eco­nomic con­tri­bu­tion to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and the UK as a whole, as well as our in­dus­try lead­ing health cre­den­tials which I hope he feeds into the gov­ern­ment’s up­com­ing child­hood obe­sity strat­egy.”
