    Quiznos taking big bite out of sandwich restaurants sector;
    110 franchises awarded in the province, and counting

    MONTREAL, Aug. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - Quiznos, with over 63 restaurants already
opened across the province, is gaining ground in the Quebec quick service
sandwich sector. Many restaurants are seeing high sales volumes even in the
first weeks following their opening. A newly opened restaurant in Sept-Iles,
located at 700 Laure Blvd., broke the national record for the highest first
week sales, by tripling the average weekly sales volume.
    "We've had overwhelming response from Quebecers who are really loving our
toasted sandwiches," says Alain Marcoux, Senior Vice President of Brand
Expansion, for Quiznos Canada Restaurant Corporation. The restaurants offer
chef inspired toasted sandwiches that are made to order with the highest
quality ingredients. "And because of the warm customer reception, many of our
franchisees have acquired two, and in some cases, three additional
franchises," he adds.
    Quiznos is taking a big bite out of the Quebec sandwich restaurant
market. Of the 110 franchises already sold, 63 have opened their doors to
their guests' delight. Ten more Quiznos are scheduled to open by the end of
the year, and a total of 100 restaurants should be in operation by the end of

    Franchise opportunities have been available in Quebec since July 2004.
