Subway has introduced its new Senior Vice President of Culinary and Innovation. 

The successful candidate Paul Fabre has joined Subway from Papa John’s, where he worked as SVP of Menu and Product Innovation. Now, he’ll use his extensive expertise in the quick service restaurant sector to work as a product chef, leading Subway’s global culinary development operations. 

Paul has clocked up over two decades of experience working with businesses in the fast-casual restaurant industry, including BJ’s Restaurants Inc., Trader Vic’s Inc. and Bloomin’ Brands. He’s been able to help these companies develop exciting new products by focussing on menu strategies, food innovation and research and development. 

During his time at Papa John’s, Paul implemented effective techniques to improve brand loyalty and menu offerings. The hardworking employee also held the role of co-chair of the operations and product sub-committee, and worked to make sure upcoming promotions, products and franchise initiatives were aligned. 

At Subway, one of Paul’s main responsibilities will be to drive menu improvement and innovation to introduce “new and craveable offerings”, according to the sandwich franchise. The new SVP explained: 

“Culinary innovation is my passion and our guests can expect to see new and craveable items hitting restaurants soon.” 

Subway’s CMO, Carrie Walsh, is keen to make use of Paul’s expertise: 

“Paul brings years of deep experience across the industry. As a company obsessed with our guests, we’re rethinking the entire brand experience at Subway. That means not only honouring some of the fan favourites on our menu, but offering new and better culinary experiences and flavours that our guests crave. 

“Chef Paul’s role is all about bringing innovation to our menu that complements the other bold moves we’re making across the brand.”
