Sub­way plans to freshen its look

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - MARKETS -

Sub­way wants to freshen up the look of its stores as it tries to stem a sales de­cline.

The sand­wich chain says the re­design, which in­cludes a brighter at­mos­phere and dis­plays of veg­eta­bles be­hind the counter, is the first ma­jor re­vamp since the early 2000s. The changes will take place as stores around the coun­try are re­mod­eled and new ones are built.

The makeover comes as Sub­way’s sales have fallen for four straight years amid com­pe­ti­tion from places in­clud­ing Jimmy John’s and Fire­house Subs. Since 2012, Sub­way’s av­er­age an­nual sales per store are down 13 per­cent, ac­cord­ing to in­dus­try tracker Tech­nomic.
