Subway gets thumbs up

JEN and Ken Huggins say Subway East Street is their favourite restaurant and are hoping Australia agrees.

The restaurant is competing in the franchise’s Australia’s Favourite Subway Restaurant contest in the hopes of scoring $2000 to put towards a local junior sporting club.

Jen and Ken have been eating at the East Street store in Rockhampton regularly for about five years.

“I got sick a few years back and had to change a few things in my life, and the way I ate was one of those things,” Jen said.

“The food is very healthy, it’s fresh, and the staff are wonderful.”

Jen said the pair had tried other stores before, but kept coming back to East Street because they loved the atmosphere and the staff.

Store manager Belinda Tibbits said the restaurant was already heavily involved in supporting local sport but would love to give more.

“At the moment we sponsor local under eights Magpies touch football and the Rockhampton Rockets and are in talks with the Capricorn Claws Netball team,” Belinda said. “We also heavily sponsor the Rockhampton Fitzroy Rowing Club.”

The winning store also gets to throw a party for all those who have voted for it.
