April 21, 2011 // Franchising.com // Long Island, N.Y. - Patrick Conlin, Blimpie Area Developer for Long Island, NY, announced two more Blimpie® franchised restaurants scheduled to open in the next 60 days.
"Blimpie franchisee Vishnu Patel is co-branding within an existing Häagen-Daz® in the Tanger Outlet Centers® in Deer Park, NY," said Conlin. "And, Nasim Patel and Javid Dal will open a new Blimpie franchised restaurant in Carle Place, NY, in a former Quiznos® location."
These two new Blimpie franchised restaurants are in addition to three stores recently opened, one in Deer Park on Deer Park Ave., one in West Babylon, and another in the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove, NY. "Blimpie is a popular sub sandwich chain on Long Island. We have plans to open an additional five restaurants by year end," added Conlin. "Our 'Blueprint 47' program is a great cost incentive for military veterans to join our franchise system."
To celebrate the brand's 47th anniversary this year, Blimpie—an Entrepreneur® Franchise 500® business opportunity—is offering military veterans a reduced franchise fee through its Blueprint 47 program. The program was developed to salute military veterans by reducing the franchise fee from $18,000 to $47 making it much easier to open a Blimpie franchise.
"The first Blimpie restaurant opened in 1964 in Hoboken, NJ," said Conlin. "Today there are nearly 900 Blimpie franchised restaurants across the U.S. Blimpie is America's Sub Shopïƒ’--the longest continually operating sub sandwich chain."
Headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz., Blimpie serves sub sandwiches prepared with quality ingredients along with delicious soups and salads. Founded in 1964, Blimpie has grown to nearly 1,000 franchised restaurants across the U.S. In 2006, Blimpie became part of Kahala, one of the fastest growing franchising companies in the world with a portfolio of 12 quick-service restaurant brands.
