The leisure arm of a Birmingham property company is hoping to recruit up to 100 new staff as part of an expansion drive.
Eat Fresh Ltd, which is part of Bond Wolfe, has just launched its latest operation, a Subway “eat fresh” at 64 Newhall Street, and is now looking or further sites.
“We are actively looking for more restaurant and hospitality opportunities,” said Pawan Kenth, of Eat Fresh Ltd.
“We currently have five Subway food businesses in the West Midlands, Birmingham, two at Merry Hill , Bilston and Edgbaston and we are looking to increase that to ten by the end of the year, with two additional sites already identified.”
The Newhall Street unit, part of the worldwide sandwich franchise, is the first regional chain to have been issued with a new directive that has allowed the shop to promote a more relaxed, coffee lounge feel.
Bond Wolfe also has ownership of the UK rights to the Asha’s Restaurant, and operates the restaurant which is also on Newhall Street, along with the Subway holdings.
Bond Wolfe has been growing its food and leisure offer alongside its principal property businesses which include REI, Bigwood, PaulDubberley & Co and Bond Wolfe Commercial.
Subway recently knocked McDonald’s from its perch as the fast food king, by having more restaurants around the world. By the end of last year Subway had 33,749 outlets compared with the burger giant’s 33,737, according to industry figures.
