The Subway store is located in one of Bristol’s super prime locations, Whiteladies Road in Clifton. It is at the heart of a vibrate student and local community, having operated in the location for over 14 years. Under the new owner the store will seek to grow top line revenue in the location, capitalising on the refresh of the Subway brand – Subway Fresh Forward, and also recently agreed delivery contracts with Uber East and Just Eat, as well as Remote Order. Furthermore, there is significant room for cost of goods and operational efficiencies in the store thereby improving bottom line EBITDA (“Earning Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortisation”).
Given the aspirations of the city and the South West region, these plans are judged to be conservative and prudent. The store’s core mission will be to continue growing the business while tirelessly seeking cost efficiencies, providing a stable operating platform able to service all its debt (where taken) comfortably and selectively release capital for investment in other areas.
The store is located close to Bristol University, Clifton Down Shopping Centre, Bristol Zoo, Clifton College, two laguage schools and a healthy customer based from the local community. Search results for restaurants in the area there is little to no direct competition for the store.
