Quiznos Sandwich Franchise Business Model is Easy to Scale
Lower royalty rates and start-up costs make it easier than ever to own multiple locations with the iconic sandwich franchise
It’s easier than ever to own and operate multiple Quiznos restaurants thanks to a franchisee-centric strategy called the New Deal. These structure and fee improvements have helped multi-unit owners like Adam Sinnard scale from one to several locations. Sinnard recently opened his sixth Quiznos sandwich franchise in the Denver area.
“It’s more than met our expectations,” Sinnard says. “Our sales have been going up. We’re very happy and we’re continually looking for more opportunities within the brand.”
Quiznos is one of the most affordable sandwich franchise systems on the market, making it ideal for first-time entrepreneurs and experienced restaurateurs alike. The New Deal strategy launched by our leadership team reduced our franchise fee to $10,000, as well as lowered ongoing royalty fees and national advertising fees, which are now among the lowest in the industry.
Flexible franchise models meet need in expanding markets
At Quiznos we realize our original store model needed to adapt to meet changing consumer needs and growing demand for our restaurants in areas beyond our core footprint. To set up franchisees for rapid growth, we’ve designed a modern new store that appeals to a broad customer base looking for inspired convenience. This new design instantly enhances our brand position in the market and ensures you an inviting environment in which to grow your business.
While these traditional store franchises are our core foundation, we want to provide franchisees with more ways to meet consumers where they are. We’ve embraced innovation, modifying our original design to meet a variety of geographic footprints and consumer needs. This flexibility has enabled us to expand around Denver, Colorado, the East Coast and even internationally.
Quiznos offers three models: traditional, non-traditional, and convenience store (C-Store) models ideally placed in areas with heavy automobile or foot daytime traffic. For each option, we work closely with franchisees on site selection and can also ascertain whether a conversion of an existing retail space makes sense for a particular area.
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.
