American sandwich chain Quiznos has opened its fifth UK site in Maidstone, with local firm Speciality Breads’ white and brown loaves taking centre stage on the menu.

The Maidstone Quiznos will offer a selection of chicken, steak and deli subs, as well as flatbreads and pizzas.

“It’s great to have our fifth store open in Maidstone as we continue our exciting UK roll-out,” said Jack Rai, director of Quiznos UK.

“One of our core values is our promise to source the highest-quality ingredients available, so it’s great to be working with Speciality Breads whose breads look and taste amazing.”

Quiznos has been in business for over 30 years since opening its first site in Denver, Colarado, and uses Red Tractor-certified artisan bread from Speciality Bread.

Simon Cannell, managing director at Speciality Breads, said: “We’re thrilled that a company of Quiznos’ stature is using our breads and we look forward to working with them in the future as their UK expansion continues.

“Our white and brown sub loaves are of incredible quality, great-tasting and ultra-versatile, so we’re confident they can stand alongside and compliment Quiznos’ fantastic fillings.”

The company is set to continue its expansion across the UK and has openings in the pipeline for Stratford, Newcastle and Basildon.
