Our Story

We Are Quiznos!


At Quiznos, our goal is to become both the franchisor and employer of choice. We work together to achieve company goals, yet respectfully embrace our individual differences. At Quiznos, we recognize we cannot attain these goals without having a diverse assembly of team members, franchisees, guests, affiliates and partners.

Respect and acknowledgment of our differences aid us in treating each individual in a manner in which they want to be treated. Quiznos is resolved to contribute to a workplace where our team members are compassionate and show respect for our different backgrounds, values, and beliefs.


In February 2017, in partnership with The Humane Society of the United States, we announced plans to align our supply chain with Global Animal Partnership (GAP) standards in the raising and treatment of chickens. GAP standards are the current industry gold star in chicken welfare policy. Quiznos has long worked with animal protection organizations like The Humane Society of the United States to address the important matter of animal welfare in our supply chain. This latest move is just one component to our ongoing commitment to animal welfare best practices. In 2016, we announced plans to phase in the exclusive use of cage-free eggs by 2025.

Quiznos Supplier Code of Conduct

One of Quiznos’ key guiding principles is to never compromise on the health and safety of our customers and the people we work with. To that end, Quiznos is committed to extending socially responsible practices throughout its supply chain. The Quiznos Supplier Code of Conduct establishes expectations for fair, safe, healthful working conditions in supplier facilities. To encourage compliance with all legal requirements and ethical business practices, Quiznos has established this Supplier Code of Conduct for all Quiznos U.S. suppliers (“Suppliers”).

Compliance with Laws and Regulations

Suppliers are required to abide by all applicable laws, codes or regulations including, but not limited to, any local, state or federal laws regarding wages and benefits, workmen’s compensation, working hours, equal opportunity, worker and product safety. Quiznos also expects that Suppliers will conform their practices to the published standards for their industry.

Employment Practices

Working Hours & Conditions: In compliance with applicable laws, regulations, codes and industry standards, Suppliers are expected to ensure that their employees have safe and healthy working conditions and reasonable daily and weekly work schedules. Employees should not be required to work more than the number of hours allowed for regular and overtime work periods under applicable local, state and federal law.

Non-Discrimination: Suppliers should implement policy to effectuate all applicable local and federal laws prohibiting discrimination in hiring and employment on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, age, physical disability, national origin, creed or any other basis prohibited by law.

Child Labor: Suppliers should not use workers under the legal age for employment for the type of work being performed in any facility in which the Supplier is doing work for Quiznos. In no event should Suppliers use employees younger than 14 years of age.

Forced and Indentured Labor: In accordance with applicable law, no Supplier should perform work or produce goods for Quiznos using labor under any form of indentured servitude, nor should threats of violence, physical punishment, confinement, or other form of physical, sexual, psychological, or verbal harassment or abuse be used as a method of discipline or control.

Notification to Employees: To the extent required by law, Suppliers should establish company-wide policies implementing the standards outlined in this document and post notices of those policies for their employees. The notices should be in all languages necessary to fully communicate the policy to its employees.

Audits and Inspections

Each Supplier should conduct audits and inspections to ensure their compliance with the standards and direction set forth in this document and applicable legal and contractual standards. In addition to any contractual rights of Quiznos or its affiliates, the Supplier’s failure to comply may subject them to disciplinary action, which could include termination of the Supplier relationship. The business relationship with Quiznos and its affiliates is strengthened upon full and complete compliance with the Quiznos Supplier Code of Conduct and all contractual agreements between the Supplier and Quiznos.


The Quiznos Supplier Code of Conduct is a general statement of Quiznos’ expectations with respect to its Suppliers. This document should not be read in lieu of but in addition to the Supplier’s obligations as set out in any agreements between Quiznos and the Supplier. In the event of a conflict between the Quiznos Supplier Code of Conduct and an applicable agreement, the agreement shall control.

Florida Farm Workers

Effective today, Quiznos requests that all of its produce suppliers work on specific plans to address wages and working conditions for the farm workers who pick Florida tomatoes. This agreement includes:

Through its produce suppliers, Quiznos will pay an additional penny per pound for Florida round tomatoes supplied to its U.S. restaurants. The increase will begin with the 2010 growing season. Quiznos suppliers will establish a method to pay the additional penny per pound to applicable farm workers.

Quiznos produce suppliers will work with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) on increasing farm worker participation in monitoring supplier compliance, investigating work complaints, and resolving disputes.


Because each of our restaurants is individually owned and operated, we recommend checking with your local Quiznos Franchise Owner to see if they would be interested in getting involved with your organization on a local level.
