Subway of Colchester Holds Ten Year Anniversary Celebration On Sunday June 28th
Subway of Colchester proudly celebrates their ten year anniversary at their location on 31 Halls Hill Rd. on Sunday June 28, 2009. Although 2008 marked their actual 10 year anniversary on Halls Hill Rd., Subway is taking this opportunity to celebrate this milestone and give back to a community that has faithfully supported them over the past decade. The public is invited to join them in this special celebration. They are also holding a food drive on the 28th, at their location, to benefit the Colchester Food Bank.
“We consider ourselves very fortunate to be a part of this unique community,” said Scott Asal, Owner of Subway of Colchester. “The town and local businesses are very community oriented here, sponsoring events pretty much all year long. From the summer concerts on the green to the lighting of the Christmas tree. There is always something going on in Colchester that brings the community together. It is no wonder that Colchester was named the 57th best place to live in the United States.”
“We’re so thankful for the loyal customers and the success that Subway has had over the past ten years,” said Teri Damato, Subway Manager. “We are holding a food drive to benefit those in our community that can’t always afford to feed themselves. We hope everyone joins us in giving back to the community.”
Food Drive hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. People wishing to donate to the drive are asked to drop-off canned and non-perishable foods that are well within their expiration date. There are currently 230 families that directly benefit from the Colchester Food Bank.
“Thank you to Subway for holding this food drive,” said Janet Taylor, Social Services Coordinator of the Colchester Food Bank. “We congratulate them on the ten year anniversary and wish them continued success. I hope people are able to visit their restaurant on June 28th and celebrate with them, and perhaps donate to the food bank.”
On Sunday June 28th, Subway of Colchester will be decorated festively in honor of their anniversary. All customers that purchase a sandwich on the 28th will be offered a free 21 ounce fountain drink and a bag of chips. Subway will also be raffling off a gas grill. No purchase is necessary to enter. Winners do not need to be present to win. Winners will be notified. Entries will be accepted between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Sunday June 28th. The raffle is to thank the store’s loyal customers for their patronage.
Relocating to Halls Hill Rd. in 1998, the business has steadily grown over the years. Asal and Damato have more than doubled the amount of employees from the typical seven to 15 in the past two years. All employees are local residents; most of them reside in Colchester. In the last 2 months the location has broken three of its previous sales records and its area has recently achieved the second highest sales in the country. There are over 30,000 Subway locations around the globe. Subway of Colchester also received two recognition awards from headquarters this year for excellent customer service and sales.
Asal and Damato attribute their success to their loyal customers and dedicated employees. Some customers visit the restaurant the same time each week, purchase sandwiches and sit and talk for hours. Customers and employees find the location to have a comfortable, friendly, homey feel.
“We’re so happy our customers feel comfortable here,” said Damato. “We are on a first name basis with many of them. We really enjoy being a part of the Colchester community in any way we can.”
Asal and Damato actively support the community. Subway of Colchester sponsors local sports teams like the Bacon Academy Bobcats and the lacrosse team. They donate to the Colchester Business Association networking events; participate in the Business Showcase, Tag Sale on the Green, the 57 Fest, and most recently, the Fun Fair.
