Quiznos – Doomed


Hoboken411 reader Anne noticed yesterday that the chain sub shop Quizno’s had suddenly shut down!

What’s next?


What? How Come? So suddenly?

“Closed! The inside was dark at 2:00 pm Wednesday, door locked, there’s a really big sign on the front door and another on the window that says, “Retail Space Available” with contact info. Some of the interior Quiznos decor appeared to have been removed.

I just called the non-emergency # for the Hoboken PD and asked if the closing was due to a break in/robbery, and the officer said no, he had not heard anything about any robbery or that Quiznos had closed at all. (I thought that was odd because the store is a stone’s throw from the Police Station on Hudson, I have seen many officers eating in there at lunch.)

I know Quiznos is a franchise, and lately there were some issues with corporate and the franchisees, but nothing serious enough that it could be directly attriubted to this location closing abruptly. I went there regularily for the past 2 years, and if anything, the store was busier recently than in the past. (Usually stores that go out of business have a drop off in customers, quality, etc, first indicating a problem.) I didn’t notice any such issues at Quiznos recently. Link to their corportate update.

I looked on the net, and I couldn’t find any articles or any blog postings talking about what happened at all.

Have you heard anything?

I’m not the least bit surprised that this place folded. I just don’t think it ever caught on. I went there a few times, and walked by it a million times, and I don’t ever remember seeing more than a few customers in there — most times, employees outnumbered customers.

I imagine nothing really happened that caused the closure, they probably just raised the white flag.

I guarantee we are going to see a lot more business closings on and near Washington Street before this year is done.

The fact that Blimpie lives when Quiznos dies shows that location is everything….

Spot on. I have a soft spot for Blimpie’s, but Quizno’s kicks its butt up, down and sideways.

I walked by on Tuesday about 6 and it was closed. There was a sign where you start your order that read they were out of 3 kinds of deli meat and I think wheat bread. I noticed that the drink cooler was oddly low. But I just figured they closed for the day since they were low on popular items. Guess not. I like Quiznos, just have never eaten at this one, why when we have Italian delis all over the place.
