The chain famous for $5 foot-longs plans to expand to downtown Issaquah next month.
Subway should open at 98 Front St. N. by mid-July, franchisee Karim Karmali said Thursday.
The city issued a permit for the restaurant Tuesday and, by Wednesday afternoon, green “Coming Soon” banners hung in the windows.
Karmali also operates the Subway along Northwest Gilman Boulevard.
The upcoming additions to downtown also include dessert. The nationwide cupcake craze reaches Issaquah this weekend.
The other addition, at the opposite end in the same building as the planned Subway — the storefront at 94 Front St. N. — will open Saturday as Confetti Cupcakes. Employees took to Twitter on Wednesday night to announce the opening.
The owner could not be reached Thursday morning.
