"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."Jitin Choudhury
"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." Millie , NJ
"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!" David & Erika , TX
