I went to Quizno's today. 19-MARCH-06. No Nutrition Information. They told me to go to their web site. I did. NO NUTRITION INFORMATION! So, I e-mailed them, although I doubt it will do any good. I won't eat there again if I can't get some information about their sandwiches. My whole family really enjoys them, but they will lose business if they can't (or won't) accomodate the "healthy conscience" society we live in. I did notice they have a link at the very bottom of one page, that has nutrition facts, when you click the link there are 3 (count 'em), T-H-R-E-E of their numerous sandwiches listed with nutrition facts. Thanks for your blog.This weblog got started on Quiznos, because the public policy considerations go a step beyond the non-disclosure of other restaurant chains. The federal government's beef checkoff board -- sponsors of the slogan "Beef. It's what's for dinner" -- helped Quiznos to promote what appears to be an immense high-calorie high-saturated-fat sandwich, the Quiznos Steakhouse Beef Dip Sub. It is not just about a private company making its own recalcitrant marketing decisions. It is about the federal government pressing us to eat more of a particularly unpromising product.
Unlike Quiznos, the Subway restaurant chain appears to provide great nutrition information on its website. When I started focusing on Quiznos last year, I was new to weblogging, and thought that a little exposure would prompt a response. Surely a corporation must respond to consumer demand! But the Quiznos website still includes nutrition facts information only for the same token healthy sandwiches, and the same web link for sending your comments to Quiznos.
With apologies to the regular readers, who have seen this topic before, I will keep pressing this issue. It would be wise for Quiznos to bend. If the company just once discloses its full line of nutrition facts information on its website, or sends the facts to us to share, I will lay off Quiznos for a year and start on another restaurant chain.
