The Downtown Raleigh location of Subway, the popular sandwich shop, has reopened after a month-long closure due to damage incurred during protests on June 5.
Television footage frequently showed the destruction at the franchise on the corner of Fayetteville and Martin Streets in Raleigh.
“I am grateful to be able to reinvest and rebuild my shop and appreciate the outpour of support community members have shown me during this time,” franchise owner Rashid Salahat said in a release.
The damage at the store was estimated at $80,000, and several community organizations banded together to help in raising funds for Salahat.
“All of us at NC Subway Group are very excited and proud of the team effort that has allowed this restaurant to be completely remodeled and reopen in just a few short weeks,” Tim Mann, Chief Operating Officer of North Carolina Subway Group said. “We are most proud of the resilience and vision that Subway franchise owner Rashid Salahat has displayed throughout this challenge. His commitment to the Subway brand and downtown Raleigh is unparalleled and is an inspiration to us all. We wish him many years of success in his new restaurant.”
