Quiznos has designated Tuesday, July 17, as Quiznos Colorado Fire Relief Day. On that day, Quiznos will donate 50 percent of sales reported by participating locations in Colorado to local relief agencies.

More than 40 Colorado stores will be participating, representing all locations in the state except those in airports. The comprehensive donation will be made on behalf of the corporate office and franchise owners.

The recent wildfires in Colorado have led to the loss of thousands of acres of forests and hundreds of homes. Many Coloradans now find themselves homeless, having lost most (if not all) of their possessions to the fires. For them, the rebuilding process is just now beginning.

As a Colorado-based business, Quiznos feels it is its responsibility to support its community during this time of crisis. Recently, Quiznos donated gift cards to the Red Cross for distribution to victims of the fire and to rescue workers. In addition, many Colorado Franchise Owners have reached out to the Red Cross and other organizations to see how they might help with fire relief efforts.
