American fast food franchise Subway has confirmed it will open a store in Garstang.
Building work has started off Park Hill Road, near Garstang Fish and Chips, and is expected to be completed and open in February.
The opening is set to create up to 10 part time and full time jobs.
The store, which mainly sells submarine sandwiches and salads, will be owned and operated by Fylde businessman Martin Gibson who also owns Subway stores in Clitheroe, Cleveleys, Kirkham and Bispham.
Martin opened his first store in Cleveleys, near Blackpool, in 2009, and has worked tirelessly to become the best performing franchisee in the region.
Last year he became Subway Owner of the Year for the Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Merseyside and Isle of Man regions and also sponsors swimming club Clitheroe Dolphins.
