Subway To Bring Café Concept To South Florida

April 27, 2012 by  

Miami area Subway locations are scheduled for redevelopment. The first South Florida store to get a make over is the location on the Florida Atlantic University campus. The new name is Subway Café and the FAU location is just the first of many to undergo cosmetic surgery in the new year. Once completed, it will seat up to 70 people.

The reconfigured Subway Café will have a larger menu and will offer more gourmet items such as upscale coffee blends, salads, baked goods and paninis. Menu changes at restaurants, from fast food chains such as Subway to the most exclusive French restaurants, require new menus which can be good business for print companies.

Apart from an expanded menu, the revised Subway stores in the Miami and South Florida area will be elegantly appointed with leather seats, marble and hardwood on the floor, and stone features on the walls. Diners will enjoy programming on flat screen TVs. These upscale renovations will be implemented in high traffic locations such as stores in university campuses like FAU, hospitals and corporate centers.

The concept was piloted in Washington, D.C. four years ago, but Subway officials believe it will have much more success in the Miami and South Florida area, where customers can still get their traditional Subway fare in a nice environment.

There are 270 stores in South Florida and 28 alone opened last year with another 20 currently under construction. Last year, fast food giant McDonald’s was overtaken by Subway, which now has the most fast food locations open on the planet.
