Through the partnership, the brands say they envision a more seamless experience for EV drivers with the installation of Subway Oasis charging parks at select locations. These will feature charging canopies with multiple ports, picnic tables, Wi-Fi, restrooms, green space and even playgrounds. As part of a multi-year plan to rollout the Subway Oasis parks, smaller-format, fast EV charging stations will be piloted at select, new or newly remodelled restaurants across the US.

GenZ EV Solutions works with Red E Charging, an EV charging network, to provide proprietary software, with high uptime and reliability, as well as operating expertise for the EV charging stations and Subway Oasis parks.

Both initiatives are designed to offer added convenience for on-the-go customers, while doing good for the planet and generating incremental revenue for franchisees. Users may also benefit from dedicated Subway promotions, available only while utilising an EV charging station.

According to Jose Valls, CEO of GenZ EV Solutions, equitable access to charging is essential to the adoption of EVs in the future. “Subway's scale will play an important role in democratising charging infrastructure for millions of Americans. By coupling our technology and know-how with Red E Charging's strategic site selection and Subway's network of restaurants across the US, we are continuing to make key strides in building the EV infrastructure of tomorrow."

Subway is partnering with franchisees of both traditional and non-traditional locations, to identify sites for both smaller-format EV charging stations as well as Subway EV Charging Oasis parks of the future.
