FAU Gets First Subway Café in Florida

April 30, 2012 by  

Florida Atlantic University, located in Boca Raton, will be the first Florida location to receive a Subway Café. The international restaurant chain will debut its new café concept at the campus location, with many more to follow in the South Florida area over the next few years, said Larry Feldman, chief executive for the Subway Development Corp.

Restaurant chains and other businesses that expand in the Boca Raton and South Florida area typically use banner printing, poster printing and other services offered by local print companies to promote new ideas or concepts within their company. Expansions such as the Subway Café may even require services such as business card printing or stationery printing to reflect changes in branding, offerings or other business-related concepts.

The new Subway Cafes will expand the current menu to include a variety of gourmet coffees, pastries and panini. In addition to the upgrades in the menu, all new stores will provide leather seating, stone inlays, marble and hardwood floors, and flat screen TVs. According to Feldman, the new design will primarily be offered in urban, high-traffic areas, such as university campuses, hospitals, high-rise buildings and fitness centers.

The very first Subway Café, located in Washington D.C, opened its doors to the public in 2008. Feldman said he expects the upscale concept and new menu offerings in South Florida to surpass the success of the Washington D.C. location. Feldman operates nearly 1,200 stores located in Washington D.C, South Florida, Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.
