Sandwich Subway has partnered with Sweden-based Visual Art in a major acquisition that will expand Visual Art’s footprint across the Eurozone, according to a press release.
The deal is the culmination of a selection process that began in 2020 and covers 23 European markets, bringing digital signage and content upgrades to 5,000 Subway stores across Europe, with its largest presence in England, Germany and France.
