The company has 2,100 restaurants (I’ve been there, and use the term “restaurant” loosely”) and all but 7 are owned by franchisees. They will not be affected by the bankruptcy, apparently.
The more you know: Quiznos was founded in 1981 and has locations in 34 countries! The company already restructured as recently as 2012, giving majority ownership of the company to Marc Lasry’s Avenue Capital Group LLC.
The company listed a debt load of over $500 million and requested a $15 million loan to keep the lights on while they restructure operations.
I hope they figure things out because I must admit they hit a home run with the Prime Rib Steak and Peppercorn sandwich. No, they are not a sponsor, that sandwich is just delicious.
