Subway inaugurates new Yigo branch

Among those who attended the ribbon-cutting were Yigo Mayor Rudy Matanane, Senators Joe San Agustin and Jim Moylan, and Lt. Gov. Josh Tenorio.

Subway Guam held a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier today at its soon-to-open Mobil Yigo North Station branch to celebrate 30 years on Guam.

In attendance were several island officials such as Yigo Mayor Rudy Matanane, Senators Joe San Agustin and Jim Moylan, and Lt. Gov. Josh Tenorio.

In line with Subway’s rebranding efforts, this restaurant has a fresher look with vibrant new colors and technology.

Marcus Fong, managing director for Subway Guam, says this location is one of four locations worldwide to implement the new design.

“This new decor is part of the Subway initiative and one in four restaurants worldwide have this decor right now. We’re fortunate to have one of our restaurants with this new design. It’s a new color palette, a new feel, and a lot of new equipment. It’s a lot more efficient for our team members so this is something that we’re really excited about having here,” Fong said.

Fong added that they will be bringing back the highly requested Subway Pastrami, and many more items to the menu.

“We’re always introducing new menu items and new innovations so right now we’re working on some Subway sliders. We’re working on some pitt smoke brisket and were going to be bringing back very soon the Subway pastrami,” Fong said.

As Subway celebrates 30 years on the island, this latest Subway outlet is set to open within a week, and will be open 24 hours.

What’s special about this Yigo location is that it’s only a few blocks away from Guam’s first-ever Subway restaurant, which opened up in 1989.

As the village continues to prosper and grow in businesses, Subway offers up a new healthy alternative for Yigo residents.

Fong says that they are hoping to continue to expand throughout the island. He thanks the people of Guam for embracing them as part of the community.

Subway will also be offering a buy-one-get-one-free promotion every Saturday until Oct. 12.
