“Quiznos is an iconic brand that remains an innovator in the fast-casual sandwich category, and I truly believe – with everything the brand is doing differently, from its menu to their new franchisee-first model – that Quiznos can return to the top 10 in the QSR category,” Patel said in a statement. “I’m ready to jump back in, putting my industry passion, knowledge, and expertise towards the betterment of the brand and the local business community, ultimately bringing Quiznos to new guests and longtime fans alike.”

Patel enjoys exclusive rights to “key markets” across the Grand Canyon State, and will kick off the venture in his home city of Tucson near the University of Arizona, followed by the construction of two more locations that year and another three in 2024, culminating in 30 units by 2029.

What’s more, the majority of those restaurants will follow Quiznos’ new modular design, which prioritizes “flexibility and efficiency,” and are significantly quicker to construct. 

In a statement, Quiznos CEO Tim Casey said, “Since we announced our exclusive partnership with BCubed Manufacturing, interest and enthusiasm for the modular, free-standing Qube restaurant has been tremendous. We are excited for what this means for the future of the Quiznos brand, our fans, and the strong unit-economic potential for our franchisees.”
