BLIMPIE was recently named "Healthy Dining Restaurant of the Month" by eDiets. Director of Nutrition Services, Pamela Ofstein, prefers BLIMPIE when she's "in the mood to eat something that is going to be low in calories and fat, but sub-stantial."
"Our BLIMPIE franchise owners understand that everyone is looking for value and healthier meals these days," said VP of Marketing Kate Unger. "Not only is BLIMPIE affordable, it's also a convenient alternative to traditional fast food fare, and most important, the quality of our food is superior."
"There's always something new and fresh going on with our BLIMPIE franchise opportunity. Now is a great time to join our franchise family," said Pat Conlin, BLIMPIE Area Developer. "BLIMPIE restaurants are easy to own and easy to operate—there's no cooking or frying involved, simply fresh sliced meats & cheeses custom prepared on fresh baked bread for every customer. And, we provide comprehensive pre-opening and on-going training and support that are benchmarks for the industry."
