"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."
Brian Corsetti  

"I started working at a Blimpie when I was 15. I've worked at several different Blimpie locations for the past 12 years. When I had an opportunity to buy an existing store, I jumped at it. I knew it would be a good investment. I remodeled the store and couldn't have done it without the training and support from Kahala and my area developer. I love the Blimpie product, and I'm very proud of our fresh slicing every sub and providing the best quality subs and value to my community."
