Quiznos Debuts Extra-Long, Extra-Slim Sandwich

DENVER -- Quick-service sandwich chain Quiznos yesterday launched new Toasty Torpedoes, a new sandwich inspired by the famous slim Italian and French baguette sandwiches served in Europe.

The new sandwiches are prepared on extra-long and extra-slim ciabatta bread and come in a sleeve to make them easy to eat, the company stated. With more than a foot of sandwich and priced at $4 in participating locations, these new sandwiches aim to set the standard for value, convenience and taste, according to a news release from Quiznos.

"The addition of Toasty Torpedo sandwiches to our menu allows people to enjoy the great taste of Quiznos for just $4," stated Rebecca Steinfort, chief marketing officer. "We realize almost everyone is feeling the pinch in today's economy. An important way Quiznos can help ease that stress is by offering people terrific value without sacrificing quality and taste, a gesture that started in January with our ongoing New Lower Prices campaign."

The long, slender Toasty Torpedo subs come in a specially designed paper sleeve that makes it compact and easy to eat on the go. The original packaging was created to fit the extended sandwich and give consumers a more manageable way to enjoy a sub.

Toasty Torpedoes are available in five made-to-order varieties including:

-- Italian: Pepperoni, spicy capicola, ham, mozzarella cheese and red
wine vinaigrette, topped with lettuce and chopped tomatoes.

-- Big Kahuna Tuna: Tuna salad, cheddar cheese, sliced banana peppers
topped with lettuce and chopped tomatoes.

-- Pesto Turkey: Thinly-sliced oven-roasted turkey, red wine vinaigrette, mozzarella cheese and basil pesto topped with lettuce and chopped tomatoes.

-- Turkey Club: Thinly-sliced oven-roasted turkey, crisp bacon, red wine vinaigrette, mozzarella cheese and mayonnaise topped with lettuce and chopped tomatoes.

-- Beef, Bacon & Cheddar: Thinly-sliced roast beef, crisp bacon, mayonnaise,
cheddar cheese, and mustard topped with lettuce and chopped tomatoes.

Celebrating its 27th anniversary, Denver-based Quiznos is an international chain serving sandwiches, soups and salads in more than 4,500 franchised restaurants globally.
