Flagship subway proposed for Fort St. James

A proposed new-style Subway is “pretty much a go.”

A proposed new-style Subway is “pretty much a go.”

The District of Fort St. James has approved in principle a preliminary development permit for a new Subway franchise store to be built.

The development permit is for the new restaurant to be added on to The Source store on Highway 27, beside the Goodwin Building.

The new Subway would be the first of its kind in B.C., and would incorporate a coffee-shop style seating area with high ceilings, exposed beams, a fireplace and leather seats and a front patio area.

The proposed store also includes a drive thru and would serve Seattle’s Best Coffee.

The push to put the first store of this kind in B.C. in the Fort came from the Subway Corporation, according to Lionel Conant, who works for Columbine Investments, the company looking to develop the property for the Subway franchisee.

 

The nearest Subway of this kind would be in Alberta.
