Quiznos Set to Take a Slice of the Canadian Pizza Market

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 13 /CNW/ - Quiznos Sub, Canada's premium sandwich
restaurant chain, is expanding its menu beyond its popular toasted sandwiches
and salads with the introduction of a line of Flatbread Pizzas. This launch
comes on the heels of Quiznos' announcement of a first quarter same-store
sales increase of seven per cent over 2006, an industry-leading growth record
for the quick service restaurant category (QSR) in Canada.
    "With our new Flatbread Pizzas, we're adding to our high-quality menu in
a way that will wow our customers and attract new pizza lovers to the great
Quiznos taste," says Greg MacDonald, President of Quiznos Canada. "This launch
is part of our commitment to stay a cut above our competition, in terms of
quality, freshness and taste. We're confident our new Flatbread Pizzas will be
a popular choice for Canadians this summer."
    Quiznos hopes to capture a segment of Canada's lucrative pizza market and
help push same-store and company-wide sales to record levels this summer. To
support this goal, the company will support the launch with television and
Internet advertising, direct marketing and public relations.
    Made from premium-quality ingredients, the NEW Flatbread Pizza is a
modern twist on traditional pizza. With a combination of fresh toppings and
specialty sauces, Flatbread Pizzas are a totally different, lighter and more
flavourful way to enjoy pizza. Every pizza is topped with the perfect blend of
cheddar, mozzarella and other authentic Italian cheeses on a thin and
satisfying flatbread that's baked to perfection the Quiznos way. New Flatbread
Pizzas are made fresh for every customer, and served all day, every day, so
consumers can enjoy it for lunch, dinner or as a snack.
    Quiznos Flatbread Pizzas come in four delicious varieties:
    -  Big Pepperoni - Fresh tomatoes, pepperoni, four-cheese pizza mix.
    -  The Works - Fresh tomatoes, pepperoni, salami, capicola, ham, four-
       cheese pizza mix.
    -  BBQ Chicken - Chicken breast, BBQ sauce, bacon, red onions, cheddar,
    -  Buffalo Chicken - Chicken breast, tangy buffalo sauce, cheddar,

    The Big Pepperoni and The Works are available in a half size (4 slices)
for $3.99 or a whole size (8 slices) for $6.99. The BBQ Chicken and Buffalo
Chicken are available in a half size (4 slices) for $4.49 or a whole size (8
slices) for $7.49. Prices may vary from store to store.
