Subway, one of the world’s largest restaurant brands, is partnering with GenZ EV Solutions to create an “EV Charging Oasis of the future.” The partnership aims to address one of the biggest concerns associated with the transition to electric vehicles (EVs): the lack of available charging stations and what to do during the charging time.
The Subway Oasis charging parks will feature multiple ports, picnic tables, Wi-Fi, restrooms, green space, and even playgrounds at select locations. The rollout of the Subway Oasis is part of a multi-year plan, with smaller-format, fast EV charging stations being piloted at select, new or newly remodeled restaurants across the U.S. from 2023.
GenZ EV Solutions is partnering with RED E Charging, a fast-growing EV charging network, to provide proprietary software, with immense uptime and reliability, as well as operating expertise for the EV charging stations and Subway Oasis.
The Subway Oasis initiative is designed to offer added convenience for on-the-go guests, generate incremental revenue for franchisees, and do good for the planet. Guests may also benefit from dedicated Subway promotions, available only while utilizing an EV charging station.
Mike Kappitt, Chief Operating and Insights Officer of Subway, said, “Our partnership with GenZ EV Solutions is a win for our guests, our franchisees, and our planet, creating a dedicated space for drivers to charge their vehicle while enjoying their favorite Subway sandwich.”
Subway, with its unmatched footprint, is well-positioned to offer a quick, reliable charge to EV motorists and contribute to a national network of charging stations. The Subway Oasis could help bring a sustainable solution to market.
According to Jose Valls, CEO of GenZ EV Solutions, “Equitable access to charging is essential to the adoption of EVs in the future, and Subway’s scale will play an important role in democratizing charging infrastructure for millions of Americans.” He added, “By coupling our technology and know-how with Red E Charging’s strategic site selection and Subway’s network of restaurants across the U.S., we are continuing to make key strides in building the EV infrastructure of tomorrow.”
