AAFES to open Subways at two Kaiserslautern casernes
Stars and Stripes November 26, 2010
KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — Two Subway sandwich shops are slated to open at Army bases on the east side of Kaiserslautern next month, according to Army and Air Force Exchange Service officials.
The first is scheduled to open at Panzer Kaserne in the former Panzer Snack Bar in Building 3005. Air Force Lt. Col. David Correll, AAFES-Europe/Southwest Asia deputy commander, said officials had planned to open the shop by Monday, but were unable because of a contracting problem and are now hoping for an opening between Dec. 6 and 9.
Kleber Kaserne, just down the road from Panzer, will also get a Subway, with doors expected to open by Dec. 14, Correll said in an e-mail to Stars and Stripes.
The Subway concession will be added to the Kleber snack bar in Building 3231, which is being converted to also accomodate an Anthony’s Pizza, according to Correll.
Subway was selected “because the military members told us this was something they preferred,” Correll said, adding that the sandwich shop chain has been an “extremely successful healthy option for our customers at other military locations.”
The new Subway shops will be open weekdays only: Kleber from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Panzer from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The additions will bring the total number of Subways at military bases in Europe to 28, according to Correll.
