DENVER – Quiznos opened a new restaurant in Hobbs, NM, billed as the blueprint for future locations of the quick-service sandwich chain. The new Hobbs location features an expanded menu of global-inspired flavors in addition to a new drive thru and patio dining. Flat top grills and deep fryers were installed to support several of the new menu items, the company said.

Quiznos upgraded longtime fan favorites like the Italian, Mesquite Chicken and Chicken Carbonara subs. New items include an Asian Steak Dipper, made with grilled steak, pickled vegetables, fresh cilantro and basil, and pho dipping sauce; the Steakhouse Philly made with grilled steak, cheddar cheese, provolone, grilled mushrooms and onions with zesty grill sauce; the Carne Supreme made with meatballs, pepperoni, salami, capicola, ham, provolone, and marinara; and Steak and Eggs, a new breakfast item served all day made with fried eggs, grilled steak, white American cheese, grilled onions and peppers, and cherry peppers.

“We are always looking for ways to improve the dining experience for our guests and are delighted to roll out these latest updates that take that experience to the next level,” said Dominik Mendoza, owner of CF Lifestyle Investments LLC, and Quiznos franchisee. “Our focus remains on providing high-quality service and delivering craveable food the brand is known for. Initial feedback on the new items underscores peoples’ appetite for creative twists on familiar classics.” 

The chain also expanded its vegetarian options with an enhanced veggie guacamole and a new grilled, plant based Beyond Italian sausage, provolone, grilled peppers and onions, and marinara. 

New salad options include the Steak and Frites made with grilled steak, fries, chopped bacon, tomatoes, red onions, and ranch dressing, and the Cobb salad made with grilled chicken, chopped bacon, chopped egg, tomatoes, and avocado ranch dressing.

“As a brand, we are known for our innovation and it all started with being the first to integrate toasting into our menu,” said Mark Lohmann, president of REGO Restaurant Group which owns Quiznos. “We’re bringing in great new flavors and formats for our guests with the launch of these delicious new subs and vegetarian options, as well as the upgraded fan favorites. We continue to seek out more exciting flavors to add to our restaurants and provide a unique, new experience.”
