Business is booming at new Wakarusa Subway
WAKARUSA — Business is booming at one of Wakarusa’s newest businesses, and owner Scot Giddings couldn’t be more pleased.
The Wakarusa Subway restaurant is situated within the new business and residential complex along the State Road 19 corridor, just north of CR 40. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Dec. 3, but the establishment has been welcoming customers since Oct. 1. The debut of the restaurant marks the first business to be unveiled in the evolving Wakarusa Business Center.
“Business to date has exceed expectations so far,” says Giddings. “Hopefully, it continues.” Giddings is assisted in the daily operations by manager Shannon Fisher, who is the restaurant’s manager.
Subway offers both drive-through service and a spacious dining room, which are open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. every day. Breakfast is also served, with morning meals available at any time of the day, as well as full menu items.
Thus far, Giddings notes that the the various styles of the $5 footlong sandwiches, particularly the roasted chicken breast and the spicy Italian subs, are always popular selections. The more modestly sized six-inch subs are also selling well, with chicken bacon ranch and turkey breast among the top picks with customers.
“The business will certainly be an asset to the community as we offer a convenient, value priced, and healthy alternative to other restaurants in the area,” Giddings says. “Our staff consists of mostly Wa-Nee residents, so some of the faces may be recognizable to customers.
Giddings also notes that his commitment to Wakarusa will extend beyond his responsibilities at Subway. “My goal is to have extended involvement with the community, support local activities and schools, and provide excellent service and product for years to come. Hopefully, other businesses look at the recent growth in Wakarusa lately and consider the area.”
