Quizno’s Shuts Down

19 Dec

When I heard that the Quizno’s in Oxford closed, it didn’t shock me. Not because I thought there was anything wrong with the store or its food, but because more than 1,800 Quizno’s franchises have shut down since 2007. A rash of franchisee complaints have lead to the closure of hundreds of stores, and Quizno’s recently decided to start opening corporately owned locations in an attempt to replace them. Read more here.

In related news, if you know you’re going to continue to crave subs even with Quizno’s gone, an outpost of 390-unit Firehouse Subs is set to move into the old Movie Gallery location on Jackson Avenue (more details to come).

    Firehouse is definitely a step up from Quizno’s in my book. Even better would be Jersey Mike’s – as long as we’re talking about franchise sub shops.

      Has anything moved into the Quizno’s spot?

        That’s where the Jimmy John’s set up shop.

    On a somewhat related note, I hear that Panera will be opening in Oxford in November 2011.
