The man who owns the Clitheroe Subway shop is enjoying the taste of success after scooping a top regional award.

Martin Gibson, who owns Subway stores in Clitheroe, Cleveleys and Bispham, has become Subway Owner of the Year for the Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside and Isle of Man region.

Since Martin opened his first store in Cleveleys, near Blackpool, in 2009, he has worked tirelessly to become the best performing franchisee in the region.

His Clitheroe store, in Whalley Road, opened in July, 2010, and earlier this year he began sponsoring local swimming club Clitheroe Dolphins.

Martin employs 25 people across his stores and is due to open a fourth one in Kirkham in November.

Martin said: “I am really pleased to have been awarded the Owner of the Year award by the Subway regional development team. I love my job and I have a great team of people working with me across all three stores.

“I enjoy working in the local communities close to the stores, and the recent partnership with Clitheroe Dolphins is a great example of that – we try to do our bit wherever we can.”

Neil Denny, regional development agent for Subway added: “Martin has proved himself to be an incredibly hard working franchisee and we are delighted to have been able to present this award to him in recognition of his dedication to his stores and the local communities in which he operates.”

Martin was presented with a trophy and certificate at a recent owners’ rally for Subway franchisees in the region.
