Surindar Pal was the recent guest of the Corcoran Rotary Club speaking about his Subway Sandwich store in Corcoran in the club’s Business to Business segment.
Driving from Fresno every morning to get coffee and breakfast items prepared, Paul, as he’s known to co-workers and local residents, has the shop open by 7 a.m. On the menu are a variety of omelet sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, plenty of coffee, milk and juices. A variety of healthy choices are available, noted Paul. The same goes for lunch.
In addition to the full menu of sub sandwiches, customers get to pick the bread on which they are served and can choose from calorie-conscious selections to meat balls slathered in cheese and mariner sauce. Even individual pizzas are available at just $5 each.
And he has a special for December, both the meatball sandwich and cold-cut sandwich will be just $2 for the six-inch size. Local residents can also take advantage of the lunch special, which provides a six-inch sub with chips and a drink for $5. Any meal can also include a side, like the yogurt or cookies on display.
Paul keeps the shop open until 9 p.m., so those who would like a sandwich, perhaps accompanied by a bowl of soup, are also in luck.
With 10 employees, Subway makes sure customers get though the line quick. And they do more than just serve up single meals. Trays of sandwiches can be ordered for meetings or other get-togethers, salads can be prepared to eat in or take out and platters of cookies will be served up to order.
Paul said he has no specific business in Corcoran as his favorite, but he likes many of the downtown shops. He said the people are friendly and he likes to work with them.
