Quizno's Sub is a fast-food sandwich chain that specializes in toasted submarine sandwiches.

A Quizno Sub

Quizno's is known for its method of toasting its subs after adding all ingredients except the cold vegetables like lettuce. All of its subs are hot, though they can still be sold cold at the customer's request. The most popular subs are the Classic Italian, the Mesquite Chicken with Bacon, the Black Angus, the Smoked Turkey, the Chicken Carbonara and the Honey Bacon Club. Quizno's now has over 3000 franchises in 15 countries.



Spongmonkey ad

Over the years Quizno's has had varied success at advertising campaigns. A 2002 Super Bowl ad was very successful while other ad campaigns were not as successful. One such ad that debuted in 2003 depicted a man "raised by wolves" suckling at a mother wolf's teat. Another ad experiment featured Spongmonkeys and was either loved or hated by reviewers. Regardless, the Spongmonkeys were quickly canned, as they failed to resonate with viewers. Quizno's ads in Canada have featured hockey commentator Don Cherry. In 2005, Quizno's launched a series of ads featuring Baby Bob; like the Spongmonkeys, Bob originated as an internet blog phenomenon, but was also attached to a short-lived CBS tv series. In the new commercials, Bob is voiced by Ken Hudson Campbell.


The first Quizno's Sub restaurant opened at 13th and Grant in Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood in 1981. In 1987, after overhearing a comment by a customer, Rick Schaden opened the first franchise in Boulder, Colorado. In 1991 Rick Schaden and his father Dick Schaden purchased the entire franchise operation.

In 2003 Quizno's began to expand in earnest in Canada, where it had established a small foothold a couple of years earlier.
