What Are My Startup Costs?

How much does it cost to open a Quiznos franchise?

Quiznos is one of the most affordable sandwich franchise systems on the market. This makes our brand a terrific opportunity for first-time entrepreneurs and experienced restaurateurs alike. The total investment to open a new traditional Quiznos franchise ranges from $211,859 to $326,549*. In 2016, we negotiated a New Deal with our franchise network to reduce the ongoing royalty fees and national advertising fees, which are among the lowest in the entire industry.

Because our franchisees invest real time, money and passion into their businesses, Quiznos goes above and beyond in our support. Click here to read how we support our franchisees from the minute they sign the franchise agreement and become a part of the Quiznos family.
