Quizno's is a national sandwich shop chain that located a franchise on College Avenue in Clemson. One of the food emporiums to emphasize toasted subs, it joined in a local market already heavily stocked with sandwich and pizza outlets. "Mmmm...TOASTY!" is one of their slogans. They advertised that they honored Visa and Mastercard.
The competition apparently took its toll on sales, for the business closed its doors in the fall of 2009, posting a hand-lettered sign on the door that it was "closed for repairs". The same fading sign is still posted in mid-January 2010, with stocks and fixtures still visible inside, but no apparent work is/has been done, and the operation appears kaput.
A check of the Quizno's corporate website on January 15, 2010, revealed that the Clemson store no longer appears in their list of Palmetto State locations.
Update: As of January 21, 2010, a sign on the door announces hiring for a reopening under new ownership in February. On February 22, it was being gutted of its previous interior furnishings.
By mid-March 2010, Little Caesar's had employment applications available at the front of the under-way renovation.
