The first Blimpie submarine sandwich restaurant was opened by Tony Conza on April 4, 1964. Since then, Blimpie has expanded across the country and around the world. They serve up fresh-sliced subs with a passion.
Blimpie has grown a lot in 50 years from a and we’re thrilled to be a part of the Kahala family. As leaders of a company responsible for more than 2500 restaurants operating around the globe, Kahala’s management team believed their company possessed the expertise required to grow Blimpie into a well-respected international brand.
Today, Blimpie and Kahala's leaders have created a community based on support, trust, and independence through interdependence. They achieve cost-savings by bundling “back of the house” functions, where the entire franchise community benefits from shared teams in purchasing, finance, real estate, business training and IT to capitalize on economies of scale.
As a brand, the future looks brighter than ever for Blimpie. The quick-service restaurant market is growing and the brand has an established reputation for quality and customer satisfaction.
