Franchisee Testimonials/Success Stories
Blimpie Franchisee, New Jersey
"I love owning my Blimpie restaurant. I’ve been a franchise owner for over 17 years. Our customers are so loyal! Both my sons are involved in the business. So, it gives me great pride that I can provide for their future as well as mine. Also, we know we can count on Kahala for support. That is why I love Blimpie."

Blimpie Franchisee, Texas
"In 2003 I was an executive in Nestle Mexico. When I lost my job, I had to decide. Do I start looking for a new job? Or do I try something that I had always wanted to do? After exploring my options, we moved and launched a Blimpie location. Owning and operating our Blimpie franchise restaurant has allowed me and my family to stay legally in the US. It has helped us teach our children the value of hard work. They now work at the store during summers and spring breaks! It has also allowed us to give back and to support the military troops stationed here! We strive to have them feel that this is their Blimpie. This has been the most rewarding part of the whole experience!"
Blimpie Franchisee & Area Representative, Iowa
"When I graduated from college, I managed two Blimpie restaurants. In 2002, I purchased a minority share in a Blimpie. In 2004, we sold the Blimpie and moved to Iowa. I opened several other franchise concepts, but I never forgot about Blimpie—We loved the business model, the product quality and attention to customer service. To fulfill a dream, I bought back into Blimpie as an Area Representative. I plan to open my own store this year and franchise two more Blimpie restaurants each year. My wife and I could not be happier."

"I’m not sure which part is the best part of being a Blimpie franchisee as there are so many things to choose from. However, out of everything, I think the best is being able to have an impact of our community. From giving back via our Day of Giving™ activities, our sponsorship of our Weslaco youth peewee football team or the catering orders we do for blind children and their families. It all comes down to making sure our customers are always foremost in our minds and in our hearts. Who wouldn’t be proud to be part of such a great organization?"

"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."
Blimpie Franchisee, Indiana
"Being a Blimpie franchisee has allowed me to bring bread baked fresh daily, fresh sliced meats and the highest quality ingredients to my community. Blimpie offers new items and a wide variety of choices for my customers. Having a Blimpie inside my gas station/convenience store also has allowed me to optimize the benefits of co-branding."
