Students from Northampton College and Elizabeth Woodville School have made it to the final of Subway’s business competition.

The sandwich chain’s ‘design a sub’ challenges teams to make their own sub and create a high-impact marketing campaign with a fictitious budget of £50,000.

Northampton College’s team of Yusuf Litt Milena Chiruta, Daniils Karpovs and Mihail Spinu have created a sub called ‘The Saver’s 10’.

The team of Dylan Robinson and Charlie Turnbull-Phillips from Elizabeth Woodville School in Roade, have designed an ‘Indecision Sub’.

Both teams will now face a Dragon’s Den style pitch to a panel of Subway experts at Cambridge University on February 12.

Karin Keir-Bucknall, business studies coordinator at Northampton College said: “We are so proud that our students have been shortlisted as finalists in the challenge.

“The team has worked really hard to create their Sub and it has been a great opportunity for them to put their business skills to the test.

“The whole college is looking forward to the final and are all rooting for them to win.”

Gavin Martin, Head of Sixth Form at Elizabeth Woodville School, added: “We are delighted that our team of students has made it to the final.

“The Design a Sub Challenge is a fantastic initiative for them to be involved in and we’re really looking forward to the finals next month.”

The two Northamptonshire teams will have competition from four other teams from around the Anglia region.

The winners will see their sub launched in more than 100 stores across the region and bag themselves £1,000 worth of Amazon vouchers.
