DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quiznos, one of the nation's fastest-growing quick service restaurant chains, today announced it is partnering with America's Road Home to donate Quiznos' $5 Deli Favorites sandwiches to 250 homeless families in the Denver area. Quiznos president David Deno will make the announcement today at the University of Denver during Denver's Project Homeless Connect 6 public services fair for alleviating homelessness.
"We are pleased to donate the newly priced $5 large Deli Favorites to 250 families through America's Road Home in Denver," said David Deno, Quiznos President. "This is just another way that Quiznos is committed to being at the table and involved with this important initiative that Mayor Hickenlooper is advancing in this community."
Deno will make a presentation to a family representing the Family and Seniors Homeless Initiative, a Denver family support organization, which will distribute the Quiznos sandwiches on behalf of Quiznos and America's Road Home.
"Today's announcement is an example of our strategy at America's Road Home to leverage key relationships in the private and public sectors to create sustainable streams of revenue and resources for entities addressing family homelessness, allowing these organizations to focus on their core activities and less on fundraising," said Richard E.

"We are grateful to Quiznos team for having the vision to support these efforts."
America's Road Home, with the help of talent and expertise from Consumer Capital Partners, takes disciplines of commerce and applies them to philanthropic causes, putting private-sector strategies and return-on-investment discipline to work for the common good.
