Citysearch and Quiznos Sub Partner to Boost Sandwich Chain's Visibility Online

Sunday, June 29, 2003 - 19:34

Citysearch, a premier provider of local information, and Quiznos Sub, the fastest-growing sandwich chain in the U.S., today announced that users of Citysearch will have greater access to information about Quiznos' restaurants across the country.

Through an agreement, Citysearch's millions of monthly users will be able to quickly and easily locate one of Quiznos' more than 2,000 restaurants, and take advantage of an exclusive offer for Citysearch users only. To access the listing information for any Quiznos Sub location, users can type "Quiznos" into Citysearch's local search function, or find the nearest Quiznos restaurant by browsing through Citysearch's restaurant section for their city. Citysearch users can take advantage of the exclusive offer by visiting, where they can print a coupon good for one free sub with the purchase of chips and a drink. The offer is valid until July 31, 2003, at participating locations.

"We know that Citysearch is a valuable resource to many people, particularly when it comes to choosing restaurants," said Brooksy Smith, Executive Vice President for Quiznos. "Citysearch can lead us to an untapped customer base; customers who may have never tried a Quiznos Sub simply because they didn't know about us or where our restaurants are located."

"Quiznos is one of the preeminent quick service restaurants, and by adding their listing information to Citysearch, we are making it even easier for users to access the local services and goods that best fit their needs," said Briggs Ferguson, president of Citysearch. "We are excited to be able to offer Quiznos a cost effective solution to drive traffic to their listings through our advertising solution."
