10:45 am - 11:05 am - Building brand resilience for the next pandemic

In the last year, the Covid-19 pandemic has thrown brands a curveball where companies have to either quickly adapt to survive or be left out in the game. For Subway, agility became a key factor in building brand resilience as the brand looks at how it can move away from the traditional business model, to a country-specific model in order to continue to expand the business.

This discussion will explore how Subway accelerated its digital transformation to remain connected with guests even when cities have to be in lockdown to curb Covid-19. It will also look at the insights behind the development strategy for Asia Pacific that is formulated with the pandemic in mind, with case studies from Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, South Korea and Taiwan.
