Taking the partnership forward for the third year, Subway® India has contributed Rs 1.8 million to Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) to support their mission of eliminating hunger and work on overall development of underprivileged children across India.
Mr Ranjit Talwar, Country Director South Asia Subway® handed over the contribution cheque to Mr Dhawal Dalal, Executive Director, KSCF here today.
Earlier on November 1, 2019 Subway® India celebrated World Sandwich Day by running ‘Buy One Get One’ offer for guests across all restaurants in India. On that day, for every dine-in order placed at Subway® restaurants, the franchisees contributed a dedicated amount to the KSCF fund for the well-being of children.
Subway® franchisees around the world celebrate the World Sandwich Day every year by partnering with leading charity organizations. In India, Subway® has partnered with KSCF, headed by the Nobel Peace Laureate, Mr Kailash Satyarthi.
“As we conclude our third year of association with KSCF, we feel humbled by the difference this collaboration is making to the underprivileged children in India,” said Mr Ranjit Talwar, Country Director South Asia Subway®. We want to thank our Guests, Sandwich ArtistsTM and Franchisees for making it a success, added Mr Talwar.
Having opened its first restaurant in India in 2001, Subway® is currently celebrating its 18th year in the country. The brand currently operates a chain of more than 660 restaurants across more than 100 Indian cities. The brand leads the way in the quick service restaurant industry in terms of its product line-up which is traditionally deemed fresh and more nutritious.
