Dilbag Dhaliwal has been a Quiznos Franchise Owner for over 6
years. He and his wife, Ramneet, have successfully owned and
operated two Quiznos restaurants in the East end of Toronto.
Both Dilbag and Ramneet have received management certification
through Quiznos’ comprehensive training program.
Through their hard work, drive for success, local store marketing initiatives, and the help of Quiznos’ Restaurant Support Centre, Dilbag and Ramneet have grown their business since the time they purchased their first restaurant in 2004 and their second shortly thereafter.
Dilbag and Ramneet are strong advocates for the Quiznos brand
and demonstrate a strong dedication to their restaurant and its
customers. As part of the Quiznos family, Dilbag and Ramneet
are actively involved in Quiznos market meetings and have developed
relationships within the franchisee community.
Having been Quiznos multi-unit owners before and having enjoyed
the experience so much, in early 2010 Dilbag and Ramneet decided
that it was time for them to expand their business in a new and
exciting way. Through ongoing discussions with the Quiznos
Restaurant Support Centre, the perfect opportunity to best suit
Dilbag and Ramneet’s expansion goals was found. Dilbag and
Ramneet are now on course to open another Quiznos in December
Dilbag and Ramneet’s new restaurant is particularly interesting
because it is a non-traditional location. This new restaurant
will be located within the convenience store of the Shell gas
station at Markham Road and Ellesmere Road. With limited
square footage, the investment costs are significantly less than
opening a traditional restaurant. This location will offer a
limited menu to customers featuring Quiznos’ best-selling
items. This restaurant will be supported with a remote “back
of house” located at their existing restaurant just down the
street. Dilbag and Ramneet will be able to capitalize on the
high traffic associated with gas station convenience
The convenience store customers will benefit from an opportunity
to purchase a high quality meal from a Quiznos conveniently located
at one of their regular “pit stops”. The combination of
quick service and convenience is surely to appeal to the vast
amount of people who often do not have the time to visit a
traditional restaurant and sit down for twenty minutes to eat their
In anticipation of their upcoming opening, Dilbag and Ramneet
are already planning to continue their expansion in 2011.
Their intentions are to open two additional non-traditional
locations in eastern Toronto Shell gas station convenience
stores. With low initial investments, these satellite
locations offer Dilbag and Ramneet an opportunity to incrementally
increase profit while sticking to a business they knows and
Dilbag and Ramneet are fantastic restaurant operators who adhere to the Quiznos business model, and they are sure to experience continued success. Quiznos looks forward to growing with Dilbag and Ramneet Dhaliwal, and other franchise owners just like them.
