Subway Canada reopening many restaurants across Canada
May 20, 2020, Toronto, Ont. – Subway® Canada is announcing the reopening of its restaurant locations across Canada this month.
The company says that as the restaurants are opened they are adapting to meet the needs of the communities they serve with new and enhanced health and safety measures, expanded ordering options and a new under-$5 value menu to make it easier than ever to access freshly prepared favourites.
The new health and safety rules and guidelines will be implemented by franchise owners in every Subway restaurant across Canada. They include:
- Enhanced cleaning procedures, such as hourly restaurant cleanings, especially in high-touch areas such as door handles and credit card terminals.
- Equipping restaurant employees with masks, installing plexiglass shields at registers, and implementing social distancing guidelines for guests and employees.
- Issuing guidance for conducting wellness checks of restaurant staff at the start of each shift.
- Reinforcing stringent health and food safety standards, like wearing single-use gloves when making sandwiches, requiring handwashing several times throughout each shift, and individually wrapping and sealing all subs.
Subway® will also expand on its contactless ordering options with the introduction of curbside pickup. Curbside pickup will be available through the Subway® App in select locations across the country in the coming weeks.
“Many things have changed in the past weeks and months, but as we reopen our doors Canadians can rely on their local Subway for quality meals prepared fresh,” says Cristina Wells, country director, Subway® Canada. “Subway is committed to ensuring we exceed customer expectations to give them peace of mind during this transition period.”
