Just over a year ago, on March 30, 2009, the Quiznos restaurant in Sterling opened its doors for the first time, and hundreds of college students, excited to eat out without having to get into their cars, lined up to eat. Evidently the hungry kept coming, even after the novelty wore off. During its first year of business Quiznos served approximately 21,000 customers. Sterling College Business Professor Tim Thorpe believes this success can be directly attributed to the SC business students who manage and work at the restaurant.
"The success of Quiznos falls squarely on their shoulders for all of their effort and hard work," said Thorpe. "A big thank you to all the students and employees who have been a part of Quiznos since its inception."
Quiznos is looking forward to another successful year. Recently the store received high marks on its quality/operations audit results, ranking 650 out of over 5,000 stores.
The managers at Quiznos continue to explore ways to better meet the needs of both the College and the community. The restaurant's new hours are Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to midnight and Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
