Having been open a little over a week, Subway in Sparwood is hugely popular with residents and tourists alike. People are flocking to the new restaurant and are very pleased with the new quick, healthy food options Subway has to offer.

 

Owners Ravi and Aman Matharoo and their two year old son, relocated to Sparwood after closing down their Subway Restaurant in Calgary, A.B.  Along with establishing and running  a very busy business,  they find their spare time filled with getting to know the community they now call home.  “We were looking for a new location, when we found this one in Sparwood. It was such a great location right in front of the Titan, and also with the scenery of the mountains,” says Matharoo. “We were willing to move out of the city, and this seemed like the perfect location. We are living in a small, very beautiful community, but are still close to our family in Calgary,” he says. While launching the business, the Matharoo family is making the big adjustment from life in the city to life in Sparwood. Extended family has also joined them in Sparwood to help them out at home on the  for the first couple of weeks, while Ravi and Aman bank twelve to fourteen hour days at the restaurant.

Right now, we are just working on finding  a consistent flow. We have been really steady with customers, and realized in a hurry we need to hire more staff. We started with a few employee’s but we are currently in the process of taking applications, and hiring a couple more,” he says.

 “We really would like thank all of the patrons for their patience. And to the community of Sparwood and the Elk Valley, we extend a huge thank you for all of your support,” says Matharoo. “We invite you to come on over, try your favourite sub and say hi,” he says. “We can already tell Sparwood has a taste for the Sweet Onion Chicken Tereakyi and current special Pulled Pork,” he says with a chuckle.

 Subway is located at 131 Aspen Drive Unit 2, across from the big green truck.
