On Aug. 22, Alaska’s newest Subway celebrated its one-year anniversary in Utqiagvik. Formerly known as Barrow, Utqiagvik is the northernmost city in the United States, the 11th northernmost public community in the world and, last but not least, the northernmost city in the world where residents can indulge in famous, made-to-order footlong or 6-inch submarine sandwiches.
There are more than 45,000 Subway locations worldwide but only 34 are in Alaska. In addition to submarine sandwiches, the new Subway restaurant in Utqiagvik also offers breakfast, a variety of salads, soups, chips, soft drinks, milk and applesauce.
