The fast-food chain Subway is talking about opening up a location in a secondary school in located in Manchester, England.
Subway would be the first fast-food chain in the country to sell its food inside a school.
Subway, based in the US, is talking with a school in Didsbury, Greater Manchester, to set up a Subway counter in the school's sixth-form canteen, according to Daily Mail.
According to Andy Shakos, head teacher at Parrs Wood, the talks are in the early stages. Shakos said that the school is looking into how they can change the provision for their students. According to Telegraph, the plans were revealed after restaurant bosses Henry Dimbleby and John Vincent reviewed school dinners.
According to Mirror, in the past consumer groups have criticized Subway for using to much salt in some of their products. However two years ago the company said that they were cutting their salt content by around 33 per cent.
Subway has a restaurant that is located about a mile away from the school and the restaurant has an open menu. TV chef SImon Rimmer said that there is nothing wrong with having a sandwich every single day but if a Subway location opens up in the school and has an open menu, then that would go against everything that they are trying to do at schools.
