Boris Johnson serves a customer in the Uxbridge store.
Boris Johnson MP and Mayor of London, has visited the Subway sandwich store in Uxbridge, Middlesex. He was welcomed by Greg Madigan, head of Subway UK and Ireland; Rusty Warren, Greater London regional field manager of Subway and franchisee Chris Seymour.
The company says that the visit provided an opportunity to discuss the key issues affecting the food service industry and its partnership with the Government’s Public Health Responsibility Deal, which Subway has committed to eight nutrition-related pledges.
The mayor commented: “The Subway brand has great health messages which you should be telling everyone about. It is a champion sandwich, it is very good, the trick is slightly toasted and lots of vegetables.”
This visit was part of an ongoing programme of MP constituency engagement where Subway invites MPs to visit their local store to meet franchisees and employees. The mayor is MP for the West London constituency of Uxbridge & South Ruislip.
Madigan said: “It is important to inform MPs like the mayor, about both the brand’s economic contribution to local communities and the UK as a whole, as well as our industry leading health credentials, which I hope he feeds into the Government’s upcoming Childhood Obesity strategy.”
