Wellington Airport Welcomes Subway® Restaurant
SUBWAY® Restaurants’ second New Zealand airport store is set to open in Wellington this week.
The restaurant, which will open on 4 July, will be the first Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) to open in Wellington International Airport.
“Airport restaurants are unique,” says Mark Hawes, Development Agent for the North Island. “The new Wellington International Airport store will not only be frequented by those arriving and departing but will also service cabbies, airport staff and flight crew.”
Owned by Marcus Griffin, franchisee of three other SUBWAY® Restaurants in the Wellington region, the restaurant will also offer a dedicated coffee and seating area.
“With over five million passengers plus passing through Wellington International Airport every year, along with meeters and greeters, we’re expecting this to be a very busy store,” says Griffin.
The SUBWAY® Wellington International Airport store is open for business from 4am until midnight, seven days a week.
“Our hours will be flexible and we’ll remain open should flights be delayed or passengers have to remain within the airport terminal for extended periods,” he adds.
In 2008, the Auckland International Airport SUBWAY® Restaurant was the first airport store to open in New Zealand and also marked the 200th store opening. SUBWAY® Restaurants expect their 250th New Zealand restaurant to open later this year.
