Riverbank Subway Offers Groceries to the Public

Riverbank Subway Offers Groceries to the Public

RIVERBANK - A local Subway restaurant is offering a unique alternative for those who may not have time to rush to a busy grocery store.

Tanmeet Singh Randhawa is owner of the Riverbank Subway at 2226 Patterson Road. This week, he and a handful of other Subway owners held a virtual meeting to figure out a solution to the stockpile of produce, and a way to meet consumer needs.

"If someone walks in to a grocery store, they may not find the tomatoes or avocados they need," Randhawa said. This is where the idea for subwaygrocery.com came from. Randhawa's Riverbank restaurant is the first location in Northern California to offer the service. Local residents can shop for their essential grocery needs online and pick it up as a curbside service at the restaurant.

So far there are about five states that are participating, according to Randhawa, and a few customers have begun taking advantage of the service at his location. To get an idea on pricing, tomatoes sell for about $.40 cents each, cucumbers are $.75 cents each, and a loaf of fresh baked bread is about $1.50 each. The soups have been the most popular item selling so far. Meats and cheeses vary in prices.

"There are no lines for waiting, like at a grocery store." Randhawa said.

Another popular feature on the website are the sub donations for first responders. Those interested in showing support to those in the medical, fire or law enforcement fields can contribute a $5 donation, or purchase a sandwich platter with sides for $50.

To start an order, visit subwaygrocery.com, and enter your zipcode to choose a location. Hours of operation are from 10:00am to 8:00pm.
