Westwood’s, located at 257 Fylde Road, is open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and serves full English breakfasts, cold sandwiches, toast, jacket potatoes, soups, pies and other dishes.

The Westwood Sandwich Shop

Jess said: ‘This is without a doubt the cleanest sandwich shop in Preston.

“We sell good quality food. I try to keep it busy – by the minute it’s a big hit.

The store reopened on March 14, after closing 12 months ago shortly after its launch due to the pandemic.

Jess’s new venture follows 18 years of dedicated service at The Green Frog, where she has proven popular with her customers.

She wrote: “Well, I never thought I would write this status, to be honest, and I’m really disgusted to have to write this.

“If you know me, you know The Green Frog has been my life, for a very long time – 18 years.

“I’ve created so many amazing happy memories with a special group of people, the people I’ve worked with and the people I’ve worked for.”
