New Subway® Restaurant To Open In Utqiagvik (Barrow) Alaska
(Utqiagvik, Alaska) August 25, 2017—A Subway® restaurant, which is known for its fresh baked bread and offering a healthier alternative to traditionally fatty fast food, is coming to Barrow on August 26, 2017. The new restaurant is located at 1611 Okpik Street and will feature a metropolitan design in the northern most city in the United States and the 11th northernmost public community in the world. The Alaska city formerly known as Barrow, Alaska, changed its name back to its original name “Utquagvik” in December of 2016. The city formerly known as Barrow will house the northernmost Subway® restaurant in the United States.
Subway® restaurants are famous for their made-to-order Footlong and 6-inch submarine sandwiches. They are served on a variety of gourmet breads that are baked fresh in each restaurant throughout the day. Customers create their own hot or cold sandwiches by choosing from a variety of meats, fresh vegetables, cheeses and condiments, while viewing the sandwich being assembled right in front of them.
In addition to submarine sandwiches, the new Subway® restaurant at Barrow will also offer breakfast, a variety of salads, soups, chips, soft drinks, milk and sliced apples.
“I am excited to be able to bring Subway® restaurant’s delicious, nutritious product to the people of Barrow,” said John Masterson, local resident of Barrow and co-owner of the new sandwich shop. “I look forward to seeing my neighbors and invite everyone to stop by and try our world-famous submarine sandwiches.”
Subway® Founder Fred DeLuca was a 17-year-old student when he co-founded the Subway® chain in 1965. With a $1,000 loan from family friend Dr. Peter Buck, he started the venture as a way to finance his college education. Today, there are 44,566 Subway® restaurants in 113 countries around the world.
