Sandwich chain, Subway plans to open a further 500 outlets in the UK and Ireland over the next three years, expected to create about 5000 jobs.
Subway, which sells a wide range of freshly made submarine sandwiches, as well as salads, said that it was targeting 3000 stores by 2020, up from 2500 currently.
According to the company, "The expansion plans are in response to consumer demand."
Subway is owned by U.S.-based Doctor's Associates Inc, but its stores are all owned and operated by a network of franchisees.
Subway shut 359 restaurants in the United States last year amid stiff competition in a highly fragmented fast-food industry.
