As one of the world's premier quick service restaurant chains, Quiznos recognized the significance of Eisenberg's achievement and the impact he's had toward the continued expansion of the brand.

"Richard represents the franchise model we want to attract and nurture. He serves as an example to the entire franchise system that hard work, dedication and a solid partnership will help everyone realize their goals of continued growth and success. "

Eisenberg, a Quiznos master franchisee, credits the groups' ongoing success to a premium quality product, a menu which meets consumer insights, open communication and a cooperative working relationship with Quiznos.
"Working with Quiznos has been a wonderful experience. They have provided great support and systems while still being flexible enough to give us some leeway to experiment to meet our consumers' needs.
