After a soft opening on April 16, the new Subway store on Cedar Springs is gearing up for a grand opening weekend June 11-13.

Other Subway franchise owners in the area who’ve been by the new Cedar Springs restaurant were impressed.

“They’ve been calling us the Taj Mahal of Subways,” said gay owner Chet Whisenant.

He said it’s the first Subway with granite counter tops and vessel sinks in the restrooms. The store also has big-screen TVs and an outdoor seating area.
