Eco-friendly Subway open

Orlando Business Journal reports that a local franchisee plans to unveil the state’s first Subway restaurant with environmentally-friendly elements this month, which has opened.

The Kissimmee Subway being opened by Winter Park-based DiPasqua Enterprises Inc. Feb. 18 received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.


The new eatery, in the Calypso Commons shopping center on Vineland Road, features high efficiency HVAC systems, remote condensing units for refrigeration and ice making equipment, day lighting and controls for high efficiency lighting, LED interior and exterior signs, low flow water fixtures and building and decor materials from sustainable sources. Recycled products and furnishings also were used extensively throughout the building’s construction, according to a news release.

This also is the first Subway nationwide to receive the LEED certification. Three others are awaiting certification, the release said.

DiPasqua Enterprises owns 89 Subway restaurants in Central Florida.
