Renowned for offering only the highest quality products for more than four decades, people recognize the quality associated with the Blimpie® sub sandwich franchise. In 1964, Blimpie founders had a simple idea to be the best: stack freshly sliced meats and cheeses custom prepared on fresh-baked breads right in front of our customers. Today Blimpie is one of the most respected brands in the quick-service restaurant category.

BLIMPIE Franchise Owner Brian Corsetti On What Sets BLIMPIE Apart

"I've been with Blimpie since 1997 and still believe that Blimpie has the best subs! What sets Blimpie apart from other quick-service restaurants is the combination of bread baked fresh daily with meats all sliced fresh to order and exceptional service."

Meet BLIMPIE Franchise Owner Jitin Choudhury

Blimpie 08 "I started working at a Blimpie when I was 15. I've worked at several different Blimpie locations for the past 12 years. When I had an opportunity to buy an existing store, I jumped at it. I knew it would be a good investment. I remodeled the store and couldn't have done it without the training and support from Kahala and my area developer. I love the Blimpie product, and I'm very proud of our fresh slicing every sub and providing the best quality subs and value to my community."
