There’s a new Subway in Bossier City. Not the transportation kind, but the sandwich kind. The staff at the Benton Road location celebrated with a Bossier Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting on July 22. Subway is an independently, locally owned and operated restaurant. This location is not affiliated with nearby Subways. The first thing that I noticed when I walked in the door was how clean it was. I assumed that they cleaned up for the ribbon cutting, but Mr. Larry Ludwig (the owner) mentioned that this is how they keep the store everyday.They pride themselves in providing a clean restaurant and great service. Along with the typical sandwich menu, this location has an extensive catering menu. Mr. Larry introduced Melissa Martinez, catering specialist for this location. He said that she has gone beyond being a catering specialist. She is the heart and soul of the store. She recently attended Subway catering training and impressed everyone she met. Melissa can create special platters for any business meeting or party. We were all treated to brownies and blueberry scones. The scones are just one example of how she uses her creativity to make each event special. I think I saw the mayor take two, but don’t tell him I said so.
I enjoy promoting local businesses in town. I typically don’t say one business is better than the rest, but what I will say is that this Subway has it’s priorities in order. They offer a clean, well stocked restaurant, good food and friendly employees.
See ya around Bossier,
