Quiznos in Parkade One BHS

The ACA Group has a long-standing track record of introducing American brands to the Philippines, most notably Johnny Rockets, the all-American dining chain.
I had first taste of this sandwich in Singapore and it was love at first bite. It was just a simple meatball sub but it was the meatball sub that I will never forget. Succulent meatballs and scrumptious sauce on a toasted bun — simply perfect.

So when I heard that Quiznos was opening in Manila, I was not able to help myself from jumping up and down. I was ecstatic! We were fortunate to attend its Grand Launch and have first bite of what Quiznos has to offer.
The Grand Launch was graced by no other than US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas Jr.

Dr. Amable Aquiluz, CEO of the ACA Group, gave a short speech to welcome Quiznos in the country. He is the man we should all thank for who made it possible for us to have this sandwich without going out of the country.

After the speech, the tradition of cutting a giant sandwich and releasing of balloons formally launched Quiznos Philippines.
