Quiznos today announced its plan for global growth, an initiative that entails opening new stores in about 15 more countries and territories within two years. Quiznos currently exists in 25 countries.
The plan targets Central and South American markets, as well as Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
To prepare for the expansion, Quiznos optimized the company’s international development support structure and executive training program, which includes in-depth instruction and in-store training.
The company's international development model awards master franchisee licenses to those with an existing infrastructure and strong business background in the country where they operate. Quiznos is seeking more qualified master franchisees for its expansion.
“The global marketplace presents a significant opportunity for company growth, and these markets are ideal locations for Quiznos around the globe,” said Lee Vala, Quiznos International chief development officer. “Quiznos' unique concept, quality ingredients and freshly toasted sandwiches translate well across many countries and cultures.”
