Taking Flight

What's New

  • In November, Denver-based Quizno's Corp. purchased Philadelphia-based Bain's Deli, a sandwich chain that operates mainly in mall food courts. The existing 63 outlets have the option to be converted to Quizno's, and Bain's Franchise Associates will have the rights to develop Quizno's in part of the Philadelphia area.
  • Disproving the idea that water and oil don't mix, Leesburg, Virginia-based Precision Tune Auto Care (PTAC) Inc. recently introduced two new franchises: Precision Auto Wash and Precision Lube Express. The outlets are designed to be operated individually, together or as PTAC add-ons.
  • In a recent move likely to increase exposure and expansion, Virginia Beach, Virginia-based Jackson Hewitt Inc. was purchased by Parsippany, New Jersey-based Cendant Corp., parent company of Century 21, Coldwell Banker and several other real estate and travel-related businesses.
