Blimpie Subs & Salads Targets College Seniors to Become Franchise Owners
Many college seniors would rather start their career at the top as a business owner than look up a steep corporate ladder. And in these recession times, that dream job may not be available.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) April 17, 2009 -- The Blimpie Subs & Salads restaurant chain announced plans to aggressively seek college seniors to join their team as franchise owners.
"We see a tremendous opportunity to help college seniors and community college graduates start their careers on solid footing," said Pat Conlin, an area developer for Blimpie. "In today's economy and for today's 20-somethings, paying your dues for an entry-level position--that foot-in-the-door job--just isn't that appealing any more. Many have worked in the restaurant business, and we offer them a proven franchise opportunity to start their careers as their own boss."
Blimpie was founded by three college buddies who opened their first sub sandwich restaurant in 1964 in Hoboken, New Jersey. They had a big American Dream and a simple restaurant idea: Stack the finest quality meats, cheeses and toppings on freshly baked bread right in front of the customer.
Blimpie is one of the largest sub sandwich franchise restaurant chains and is owned by Kahala Corp, a multi-concept franchisor offering the largest section of high-quality, quick-service and fast casual restaurants in North America.
"The great thing about a Blimpie franchise is that for a modest investment, smart and ambitious young adults can own a restaurant that's non-cooking and provides healthier fare than your typical fast food eatery," said Conlin. "Operating a Blimpie franchise restaurant isn't rocket science. We've got it down to a system. Follow our tried-and-true procedures and take advantage of our on-going support, and you can enjoy a rewarding business opportunity."
Blimpie recently introduced a new tag line, "America's Sub Shop," to celebrate its 45th anniversary and to solidify its brand positioning as the leader in sub sandwich quality, service and value.
Blimpie is owned by Kahala Corp, headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. Blimpie is ranked among Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500(R). Blimpie franchise restaurants can be found throughout North America and around the world.
