Complaint: I will make this short and sweet. Quiznos Sub is a HORRIBLE franchise to be involved with. They do not operate in good faith. They are deceptive thieves who lie, steal, and cheat to line their pockets. It is very common place for Quiznos Corporate to outrageously raise food and supply prices then require the Franchise Owners to purchase from mandatory suppliers while Quiznos Corp benefits from kickbacks that I am not so sure are legally right. We know they are not morally correct. Most of the mandatory suppliers for food and supplies as well as leasing agencies we are required to use have been acquired by Quiznos. It is a win, win situation for Quiznos Corporate and a LOSE, LOSE combination for the owners. Although Quiznos Corporate will not admit the truth (remember they are very deceptive), they run a failure rate of approximately fifty percent….yes 50%! That is horrible. They make it pretty much impossible to get out of the system and continuing to hang on borrowing money monthly to keep the business going has led my family to bankruptcy. If you try and leave the system you begin receiving threatening letters telling you they will sue you for the royalties they will miss out on. They tell you that you had better not close or there will be big trouble. But that is how they operate. They DO NOT care one bit if you and your family go down the tubes….they want the money. We are talking, in my case, of approx one million dollars. With the threats hanging over your head, we as owners, struggle to keep the place open as we put up our homes and get cash advances to keep the biz going. I finally had enough and had nothing left so I had to walk away. I was short a small amount of money on my food order and could have had the money in two days, but I was refused service. This was the first time in more than four years that I ran short…the first time, and what help did I receive?? NONE!! The food vendor was verbally abusive and would not help and neither would Quiznos Corp! We locked the doors and left. This type of thing would have never happened some years ago when there were only a couple of Quiznos in the area but they kept adding more and more Quiznos around us so that not a single one of us was making money. We were all losing. We were told when we purchased our two stores that our city only had enough population to support two Quiznos. We thought we had the area exclusively. To my shock and horror they opened one right up the road and then more came. So a small city that only had the population to support two stores now had store 5 and 6 in the works. PLEASE, if you have ever thought about owning one of these franchises, run don’t walk in the opposite direction. There are thousands of stories like mine in this system and now we have owners committing suicide because of this corp. They pound the hell out of you until you are but a little grease spot. And yes, we did all the research on this franchise beforehand but you have to remember this was nine years ago before all of the corruption started. To the Shady Shadens: Why don’t you just admit your failings and what you have done to almost all of us and seek forgiveness instead of taking the road to destruction and corruption. What goes around comes around and some day you will stand before the Almighty God and answer for what you have done to thousands of us. That I guarantee!
