Quiznos Franchise Stands Out in the Sandwich Industry
Chef-inspired menu and devoted fan base set Quiznos up to be a stand-out investment opportunity
Any restaurant can claim to make a good sub sandwich, but Quiznos has won over millions of fans who crave our deliciously toasted, chef-inspired subs and sandwiches. You can’t place a dollar value on that type of loyalty, but for Quiznos franchisees it translates to potentially profitable locations from day one.
Quiznos has taken the art of sandwich-making seriously for more than 35 years. We use high-quality ingredients, such as butcher-quality meats, all-natural cheeses, chef-inspired sauces and only the freshest vegetables. We pioneered the toasted sandwich, and the result is a well-orchestrated sandwich where all the ingredients work together to create one perfect bite after another.
With more than 750 locations around the world, Quiznos is focusing on a national expansion campaign; the plan is to grow by hundreds of locations in the coming years. We are actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs who have a passion for our brand, a love for their communities and the ability to follow our proven business model to join our franchise family.
“There has never been a better time to open a Quiznos,” says Natalie Hanser, Senior Director of Development. “Our main goal is to help our franchisees thrive, and we’ve made significant investments to improve our business model and increase profitability for our franchisees. Beginning with the New Deal we made with our franchise network — to reduce ongoing royalty and ad fees to put more money back in our franchisees’ pockets — and our beautiful new restaurant design, we are going to continue to invest in the long-term success of our franchisees.”
Quiznos is a brand with millions of devoted fans nationwide
One of the biggest advantages in starting a Quiznos franchise is the strong fan base that already knows, loves and craves our perfectly toasted, chef-inspired sandwiches. That brand recognition means diners hungry for a sub sandwich will choose our product every time over lesser-known brands.
“The fact that our sandwiches are designed by chefs is a tremendous differentiator,” says Hansen. “This is what we’ve been doing for more than 35 years, and this remains what the public wants: a sandwich or a salad that was designed to taste exceptional, with high-quality, artisanal ingredients, at a price that is affordable and with little to no wait. Our sandwiches are the reason behind our brand equity, and we are going to continue to innovate and expand our world-class menu to become more inclusive to more consumers over time.”
It also means that franchisees can focus on running their Quiznos restaurant rather than worrying about building brand equity. We have a full suite of local marketing opportunities and tools that owners can use to tap into their existing fan base. From our Toasty Points app to our devoted fans on social media (1.5 million on Facebook alone), owners can leverage the power of these most loyal fans to create a custom marketing plan specific to their core customers.
