BLIMPIE Subs & Salads has tremendous opportunities for multiple unit owners. Many of our most successful franchisees are multiple-unit franchisees.

Cobrand With Your Existing Business
Do you own a business that you think would benefit from the addition of a BLIMPIE restaurant? You have the ability to put a BLIMPIE unit inside your existing business to allow the two businesses to be mutually beneficial. BLIMPIE can increase the traffic in your existing business, and your business can help build sales in your BLIMPIE location. BLIMPIE locations are currently found in convenience stores, video stores, other fast-food establishments, and recreational venues such as bowling alleys and sports arenas.
Other Food Concepts from Blimpie International
Blimpie International, Inc. works continually to stay abreast of new developments in consumer and food trends. By researching consumer eating habits of today and experts’ predictions for the future, Blimpie International and its majority owned subsidiary Maui Tacos, Inc., have developed two additional concepts to add to your business. PASTA CENTRAL™ and SMOOTHIE ISLAND™ were specifically developed to help franchisees increase sales by adding additional offerings for consumers. These two concepts are open and operating within the BLIMPIE system.
In addition to offering the opportunity to own a single or multiple BLIMPIE restaurants, BLIMPIE Subs and Salads has a limited number of opportunities available to you if you are interested in owning the exclusive rights to develop BLIMPIE restaurants in a particular geographic territory, typically consisting of one or more counties. This opportunity allows you to work closely with individual restaurant franchisees in your territory on everything from finding suitable locations for restaurants to assisting them with ongoing operations. Since subfranchisors are compensated for their efforts based on the amount of sales generated by the restaurants in their territories, the more successful your franchisees are, the more successful you will be.
