Quiznos just jacked up prices and reduced sizes
No longer can you get a "regular" sized sandwich for $8.00. Now they only have 6" and 12" The 6" is $8.00 but its the size of the old "small"
I'm oficially finished with Quiznos.
Yes they also quietly last year downsized their large prime rib sandwich from 12 oz to 10 oz and hoping nobody would notice. I only eat there with a coupon and then only when I am desperate.
A preponderance of Quizno's stores have been marginally profitable, or not at all, in recent years, because food costs had crept up to 40% of sales. Store owners are required to buy food commodities from corporately-owned suppliers, but that is a separate story. The target rate for food cost is 29%, so this is an effort, on paper, at least, to salvage profitability. Customer acceptance can only be negative; the question is to what degree.
I haven't been in Quiznos lately, and the last couple times it was to try the Sammies, but if it's true that 6" of sandwich are going for $8, I'll be looking for other sandwich options. I can get a footlong at our local Planet Sub for less than that, and it's better bread and a better sandwich. It's on the other side of town, however, so I'll probably burn any savings in the trip over and back.
