SUBWAY® celebrates 30 Years on Guam with an eye to the future

From the time its first store on Guam opened, SUBWAY® has been at the forefront of innovation in the quick service restaurant industry.

As SUBWAY® celebrates 30 years on Guam with 15 restaurants, they continue to be innovators in the quick-service restaurant space – serving custom made sandwiches with garden-fresh ingredients on freshly baked breads. There is also a bold new look, aptly named Fresh Forward, that highlights the brands commitment to innovation. The chain opened its first restaurant in the village of Yigo on Sept. 13, 1989.

The brand’s evolution with the restaurant landscape on Guam will come full circle with the opening of their newest restaurant within the Mobil Yigo North service station. It will be the newest restaurant to carry the Fresh Forward Restaurant design, which encompasses the bright and bold color palette inspired by the fresh vegetables that are sliced fresh in the restaurants The lighted iconic SUBWAY® “S” Choice Mark lends itself to brand identification from the outside, even at night and the wall art depicts the brand’s choice ingredients in a fun and playful way. Eco-friendly appurtenances such as LED lighting, water-saving appliances, wall covering and molding with recycled content are all part of the new décor.

For SUBWAY®, innovation is the ability to stay relevant. From the Ultimate Cheesy Garlic Bread to Pit-Smoked Brisket and Pastrami, a Guam, favorite, SUBWAY® always has something new for the taste buds. The brand has recently entered into a worldwide partnership with Tastemade, a group of dedicated foodies who are exploring the globe for new flavor combinations. With this new collaboration, customers can look forward to more food selection and exciting flavor combinations that are trending in the food scene.

Beyond creating good food, SUBWAY® practices the four tenets of our SubCulture® – Eat, Move, Live, Do Good. We believe in making a difference in the communities where we do business. For the past three decades, SUBWAY® has actively supported local and international organizations in the areas of disaster preparedness, education, health and fitness.

December 2016, Guam – Guam Business Partners for Recycling, Inc. (GBPRI), the non-profit that created the i*recycle program, is in the process of bringing in new plastic 6cy recycling bins to replace the metal 8cy bins that were placed at participating schools in the fall of 2007. “The original metal 8cy bins have helped to grow the i*recycle program to where we are today. It has served its purpose and we are proud to work with the business community to have them replaced,” said Mark J.

I*RECYCLE PROGRAM GENERATES NEARLY A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS FOR PARTICIPATING LOCAL SCHOOLS 

 

January 2016, Guam – The Guam Business Partners for Recycling, under the project i*recycle, has disbursed over $225,000.00 to participating schools for their aluminum can recycling efforts.  “Our students continue to work hard to set the example for protecting our island home.  But more can be done at work, home and within our villages” says Mark J. Sablan of South Pacific Petroleum and President for The Guam Business Partners for Recycling Board.

The i*recycle program continues to educate the community on the importance of recycling aluminum cans throughout the island.  With more than forty satellite aluminum recycling bins stationed at public, private and DODEA schools, i*recycle efforts are also seen at many of our island-wide events.  Peggy Denney, Program Administrator, organizes volunteers in educating the community through events like the annual Bank of Guam IFIT 5k, Strides for the Cure 2k/5k and the Liberation Day Parade.

“I am proud of the work and progress our participating schools have accomplished,” Denney says.  “They are making a difference for our community while helping to support their school.”

By continuing to support this program Guam takes bigger steps to reduce the volume of the waste.  Recycling diverts valuable resources from landfills which in turn makes fewer landfills necessary.  Recycling valuable resources can result in cash returns – such as when aluminum is collected at schools and sold so those same schools can reinvest their well-earned funds into academic, athletic and extracurricular programs.  Recycling also reduces litter throughout the island and helps our communities to be cleaner and more welcoming for locals and visitors alike.

Proceeds from the sale of aluminum cans are divided proportionally among the schools where the cans are collected.  These disbursements were determined by the volume of cans each school had collected.  The Top 3 earning schools from i*recycle Program’s latest containers are as follows:


McCool Elementary/Middle School                $2,176.00

Agana Heights Elementary School                $1,742.67

St. John’s School                                            $1,578.39


 

Guam Business Partners for Recycling began the program to educate and promote recycling on an island-wide level.  The GBPR’s plan utilizes private, public and DODEA  schools as sites for aluminum can recycling bins, affording the entire community convenient access to recycling aluminum cans.
