After nearly 30 years, the Subway restaurant in Antioch at 1120 Main St., has been updated and will host a grand opening event Nov. 10-12.
Various leaders from the community will attend an opening ceremony at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 10. Buy-one-get-one-free deals will be available to all customers on Saturday, Nov. 11.
The eatery will feature new innovative additions, including the NEXTEP drive through which is entirely touch screen and includes a Spanish translation setting.
The changes are all part of Subway's Fresh Forward design. Subway continues to make speed a priority of its dining experience, with the introduction of features such as a self-ordering kiosk and an additional sandwich-making station.
Other additions to the Antioch location will include a digital menu, TVs, a pre-order pickup area, Wi-Fi, new ingredients and charging ports.
The Antioch Subway is co-owned by brothers Bob and Ron Ocwieja. Together with general manager John Rinaldi, they have operated the restaurant for nearly 30 years and refer to it as "our baby."
They have been active members of the community throughout their nearly 30-years in Antioch with after school drink deals for high school students, donations to the high school STEM programs, participation in the Chicago Marathon and the Polar Plunge on behalf of Subway's support for Special Olympics, and much more.
Subway restaurants, which was founded almost 52 years ago by then 17-year-old Fred DeLuca and family-friend Dr. Peter Buck, is still a family-owned business with thousands of dedicated small business owners around the world.
