The Picayune Item
The newly opened Quiznos, located at 822 Highway 43 North, Suite B, in Picayune, held its Chamber Ribbon Cutting on Friday at noon.
Owner Robert Dinnen has lived in Picayune for seven years. He cited quality ingredients and food preparation in front of the customer as reasons for choosing the Quiznos franchise, as well as his desire to invest in the city of Picayune.
“I am originally from New York and relocated here from New Orleans, La., after Katrina. There are Quiznos everywhere there, but none for 45 miles around Picayune. With the new hospital, this is the prime time to open.
“I am more than a businessman; I live here and feel strongly about my responsibility to invest in the area and help provide job opportunities for my fellow citizens. We have hired 15 employees and look forward to expanding as our business grows. I feel that bringing a nationally known brand to this area will help promote economic growth,” said Dinnen.
Quiznos offers a variety of gourmet subs, salads, soups and flatbread sandwiches. They also offer gift cards, catering, and delivery to local businesses.
Quiznos is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and can be reached at 601-798-9000.
