Quiznos has partnered with Mexico City-based Quizmex SA DE CV to open more than 150 restaurants in Mexico throughout the next 10 years, including five in Mexico City in 2013.
The group, led by Moises Tawil and Mauricio Levy, plans to open a Quiznos restaurant on the famed Avenida Presidente Masaryk in Mexico City, shopping district anchored by restaurants and boutiques.
The partnership is the latest in a series of recent Quiznos international development announcements, including expansion into the Philippines and India. In the last two years, Quiznos has expanded rapidly in Brazil, most recently in the cities of Curitiba and Rio de Janeiro. Quiznos will also open its first Russian location in March 2013.
"We are excited about this new opportunity to expand the Quiznos brand into Mexico," said Kenneth Cutshaw , president of International for Quiznos. "Quizmex is an exceptional partner and we are eager to grow the Quiznos brand with them. Mexico is experiencing a growing foodservice sector and we are thrilled to bring Quiznos' toasted, chef-inspired sandwiches to the Mexican people."
Through its international development initiative, Quiznos expects to open more than 1,000 international locations in more than 40 countries by 2020.
