There is still a promise of a new SUBWAY® coming to Grant in the future.

According to franchise owner Michael Jonasen, things are moving along, but there is no definite date set for occupancy of the former youth center on Central Avenue. 

Some demolition has been done to prepare for construction, and hopefully construction will start soon, he said. 

There have been several setbacks, said Jonasen, who also owns SUBWAY® sandwich shops in McCook and Imperial. 

“It’s going to happen, I guarantee you that,” he said. “It’s just a matter of time.” 

The delay in renovating the building and getting construction going has mostly been due to paperwork.

“There is so much red tape nowadays,” he said.

The new restaurant, which requires that many standards be met because it’s a franchise, will open at 222 Central Avenue.
