Quiznos streef na 'n beskeie groei in 2012 met 'n nuwe, doeltreffender prototipe en meer ondersteuning vir franchisenemers na 'n herstruktureringsooreenkoms wat gelei het tot nuwe eienaarskap en 'n inspuiting van $ 150 miljoen kontant.

In 'n onderhoud vandeesweek met Nation's Restaurant News, het Brian Belmont, hoofontwikkelingsbeampte van Quiznos, gesê die toebroodjieketting in Denver beplan om 80 tot 100 nuwe huishoudelike eenhede vanjaar oop te maak, tesame met nog 80 lokasies in die winkel en ander nie-tradisionele plekke, 'n beskeie stap in die rigting van groei na 'n paar jaar van eenheidsluitings.

'Ons groei vir môre,' het Belmont gesê. 'Ek sal bly wees as ons 100 restaurante in 2012 sou oopmaak.'

Verlede jaar het die ketting 176 plekke geopen, waaronder ongeveer 70 geriefswinkeleenhede.

Belmont het gesê die ketting is gereed vir 'n terugkeer nadat sy eienaarskap na Avenue Capital Group verskuif het in 'n ooreenkoms wat die onderneming se skuld verminder en 'n aftrekking van $ 150 miljoen in nuwe aandelekapitaal ingesluit het.

As gevolg hiervan sal Quiznos nou meer operasionele veldondersteuning aan franchisenemers kan bied, asook 'n bydrae lewer tot 'n 'goeie, deurdagte' nasionale mediaveldtog wat volgens Belmont soortgelyk is aan Domino se onlangse herbekendstelling van handelsmerke.

'Domino's het gesê:' Haai, ons is terug, kyk nou na ons ',' het Belmont gesê.

Met 2 300 Amerikaanse plekke en 650 internasionale eenhede, het Quiznos aansienlik gekrimp sedert sy hoogtepunt in 2006, toe die ketting meer as 5 100 plekke gehad het.

Belmont het gesê dat die afgelope paar jaar ook verkeer en gemiddelde eenheidsvolumes gely het.

'' N Deel daarvan was die ekonomie en 'n deel daarvan was ons onvermoë om 'n volhoubare mediaplan op te stel, 'het Belmont gesê.

Die maatskappy sal terugkeer na 'vlakke voor 2008' in sy mediabesteding, het hy gesê.

Die ketting wil ook groei aanwakker met 'n nuwe "volgende generasie" prototipe wat onlangs in Portland, Ore, geopen is.

Die nuwe eenheid bevat subtiele dekoropgraderings, soos warmer kleure, houtafwerkings en 'n donkerder meulwerkstel.

'Dit is 'n luukse ontwerp met 'n groot waarde,' het Belmont gesê.

Die onderneming het ook die boukoste tot minder as $ 175,000 verlaag, wat volgens hom $ 25,000 tot $ 50,000 laer was as wat die eenhede in 2010 bou, met dieselfde oppervlakte van 1,200 tot 1,600 vierkante voet.

Hierdie jaar sal Quiznos voortgaan met die aansporing van franchisenemers, insluitend 'n verminderde franchisegeld van $ 5,000 vir gekwalifiseerde operateurs en kortings vir goed bestuurde restaurante. Regtevereistes van 7 persent bly onveranderd.

Daar is nog 'n spyskaart -opknapping waaroor Belmont net kan wys.

Hierdie jaar fokus die spyskaart op 'volledige toebroodjies met volle prys', met premium geure as aanbiedings vir 'n beperkte tyd. Binnekort kom byvoorbeeld 'n kreef- en seekosslaai en 'n dubbele kaassteak.

Sean Fitzgerald, senior vise -president van franchise -ontwikkeling in Quiznos, het gesê die ketting het ook nuwe instrumente om die beste liggings beter te evalueer.

Die ketting is gerig op groei in Suid-Kalifornië, Texas, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago en langs die korridor New York-Boston-Philadelphia.

"Ons gaan meer selektief wees oor ons liggings, maar ook oor die tipe franchise-eienaars waarmee ons sal saamwerk," het Fitzgerald gesê en opgemerk dat Quiznos saam met meer multi-eenheid-operateurs sal werk. 'Ons trou op die regte plekke met die regte operateurs.'

Oorleef op lang termyn na die SHTF

As preppers en survivalists het ons onsself hard opgelei. Ons werk voortdurend aan die verkryging van die kennis en vaardighede wat ons kan help om die kans te verslaan en 'n katastrofiese gebeurtenis te oorleef. Ons berei ons voor op die ergste, terwyl ons beplan vir oorlewing op lang termyn. Ons weet dat daar 'n paar moeilike maande of selfs jare kan wees wat ekstra aandag, gretigheid en uithouvermoë verg. Ons moet egter ook in ag neem dat in die geval van 'n SHTF -geleentheid moontlik herbou en herstrukturering kan plaasvind. Beplanning vir langtermynoorlewing (dink jare en dekades) moet ook deel uitmaak van ons voorbereidings.

Kos.Skelter.Water. Dit is die basiese beginsels, maar oorweeg wat u sal doen as die voorsiening oral is, en daar is nie meer gerieflike, ingemaakte en verpakte oorlewingsvoedsel wat ons kan eet nie? Wat dan?

Daar is 'n paar opsies in hierdie geval, en dit is belangrik om vooruit te beplan en voor te berei om daaraan te werk, indien nodig.

Kos soek en versamel

Voedsel soek is 'n proses om u plaaslike omgewing te ondersoek na voedsel wat u kan eet. Gewoonlik gaan dit na wilde gebiede om te sien wat eetbaar, ryp en beskikbaar is om te versamel. Opruiming is 'n ander tegniek wat behels dat jy in die veld of boorde gaan nadat hulle geoes is om die oorskiet op te vang.

Albei is lewensvatbare tegnieke om kos in te samel, maar as u na 'n SHTF -geleentheid, en vir sommige soorte kosse, opdoen, sal dit slegs vir 'n enkele seisoen goed wees. Voering is egter 'n vaardigheid wat noodsaaklik is vir langtermyn oorlewing, aangesien natuurlike ekosisteme selfsaai en simbioties is, wat seisoen na seisoen en jaar na jaar lewensonderhoud bied.

Om plaaslike wilde kos te soek, verg 'n gevorderde begrip van u plaaslike ekosisteem - en u moet uself as deel daarvan beskou, nie apart nie van dit as u op hierdie manier langtermyn wil oorleef. Dit beteken dat voedsel vir die ander diere gelaat word, en dat die plante ook self kan saai. Oes van die plaaslike plante, bome en diere sal noodsaaklik wees vir langtermyn oorlewing. Dit het ook die voordeel dat dit eintlik ook vir u gesonder is-omdat die meeste wilde, onbewerkte plante digter is as wat hulle betreklik bitter smaak toon-en nie te veel geteel is om die soetheid te verbeter nie.

Kos soek is egter nie sonder gevare nie. Vir die onopgeleide oog, en selfs met veldgidse (waarin u moet belê), kan daar plante en swamme lyk wat ewe veilig is, verteer en vergiftig word-maar dit word maklik vermy deur opleiding deur kundiges .

As u tans nie vertroud is met u omgewing nie, of die gebied waarna u van plan is om te gaan, moet u kontak maak met plaaslike veldboere en wildernisgidse wat u kan leer wat hulle van die plaaslike flora en fauna weet. U sal verbaas wees hoeveel u perspektief en persepsie verander sodra u na die wilde plante rondom u begin kyk as 'n bron van lewensonderhoud en oorlewing. As u eers u nuwe kennis het, moet u dit doen aktief voer in alle seisoene. Oefen die tegnieke wat u uiteindelik sal gebruik om te oorleef, en leer dit ook aan ander.

As u van plan is om langtermyn in u gebied te bly (en nie van plan is om nomadies te word nie), moet u u eie kos van seisoen tot seisoen kan verbou en ook buite seisoen kan stoor. Dit beteken dat u die fasiliteite, gereedskap, vaardighede, sade, bewerkbare grond en toegang tot water benodig om u eie oeste te verbou.

Oorweeg om te belê in 'n erfstuk -saadbesparingsstel, of (as u dit nog nie gedoen het nie) begin u eie tuin. Raadpleeg meer ervare tuiniers en boere en leer hoe u uself kan saai en begin om variëteite met ander te ruil. Dit is noodsaaklik om die saad van die lewe gereed te hê om te plant, want sonder dit sal u beslis geen regte kos kan realiseer nie.

Vertak uit en eksperimenteer

Begin nou met eksperimentele kookkuns en resepte om nie net u vaardighede uit te brei nie, maar ook u smaakknoppies, sodat natuurlike voedsel nie 'n volledige skok vir u stelsel sal wees as SHTF nie. Selfs as u teoreties weet hoe om oor 'n oop vuur te kook, moet u dit meer gereeld doen, sodat u u vaardighede kan verbeter.

Fotokrediet: Wikipedia

Meng nuwe geregte met ongewone groente (soos paardebloem), plaaslike dennepitte, vrugte en bessies. As u nog nie sekere soorte klein wilddiere soek om te eet nie (omdat u dit nie doen nie het om seker te maak dat u u vaardighede opdoen en oefen om kleiner diere te vang en te vang. Koop of bou die gereedskap en lokvalle en oefen die tegnieke wat u nodig het om dit te oes. Sodra u dit begin vang, kook dit en maak u gesin gewoond aan die geur. In 'n SHTF -situasie is 'n klomp kieskeurige eters die laaste ding wat u wil hê.

Eksperimenteer deur te kook met nie net vars en seisoenale wilde vrugte, neute, bessies en setperke nie, maar ook swamme. Neem 'n inleiding tot die swamklas - u sal verbaas wees hoeveel werklik eetbaar is, en dit kan u in nat weer deurdring. Swamjag (en eet) is ook nie sonder die gevare nie, dus maak seker dat u vaardighede goed is, en eet nooit 'n swam waaroor u onseker is nie.

Fotokrediet: Wikipedia

As u oefen met ervare landbouers en swamjagters en as vrywilligers werk met plaaslike tuinbougroepe, kry u die nodige vaardighede wat u nodig het om op lang termyn te oorleef. As u tyd spandeer om hierdie dinge te leer, sal u ligjare voor ander wees en goed op pad wees om te oorleef, sou die SHTF wees.

Verander ook u denkwyse van bloot oorleef, na genesing en om gesonder en sterker te word tydens die heropbou van u lewe en huis. Leer alles wat u kan oor die voedingstowwe wat u nodig het om te oorleef, en verkry dan die kennis en vaardighede om die voedsel wat voedsel bevat, maklik en maklik vir u en u gesin beskikbaar te stel.

In 'n werklik afskuwelike SHTF -situasie gaan paradigmas verander en is dit belangrik om oor die vaardighede te beskik wat u nodig het om nie net te oorleef nie, maar ook floreer in so 'n situasie. Wees voorbereid.

Neem 'n inleiding tot die swamklas - u sal verbaas wees hoeveel werklik eetbaar is, en dit kan u in nat weer deurdring. Swamjag (en eet) is ook nie sonder die gevare nie, dus maak seker dat u vaardighede goed is en eet nooit 'n swam waaroor u onseker is nie.

As u oefen met ervare landbouers en swamjagters en as vrywilligers werk met plaaslike tuinbougroepe, kry u die nodige vaardighede wat u nodig het om op lang termyn te oorleef. As u tyd spandeer om hierdie dinge te leer, sal u ligjare voor ander wees en goed op pad wees om te oorleef, sou die SHTF.

Verander ook u denkwyse van bloot oorleef, na genesing en om gesonder en sterker te word tydens die heropbou van u lewe en huis. Leer alles wat u kan oor die voedingstowwe wat u nodig het om te oorleef, en verkry dan die kennis en vaardighede om die voedsel wat voedsel bevat, maklik en maklik vir u en u gesin beskikbaar te stel.

In 'n werklik afskuwelike SHTF -situasie gaan paradigmas verander en is dit belangrik om oor die vaardighede te beskik wat u nodig het om nie net te oorleef nie, maar ook floreer in so 'n situasie. Wees voorbereid.

Oorleef op lang termyn na die SHTF

As preppers en survivalists het ons onsself hard opgelei. Ons werk voortdurend aan die verkryging van die kennis en vaardighede wat ons kan help om die kans te verslaan en 'n katastrofiese gebeurtenis te oorleef. Ons berei ons voor op die ergste, terwyl ons beplan vir oorlewing op lang termyn. Ons weet dat daar 'n paar moeilike maande of selfs jare kan wees wat ekstra aandag, gretigheid en uithouvermoë verg. Ons moet egter ook in ag neem dat in die geval van 'n SHTF -geleentheid moontlik herbou en herstrukturering kan plaasvind. Beplanning vir langtermynoorlewing (dink jare en dekades) moet ook deel uitmaak van ons voorbereidings.

Kos.Skelter.Water. Dit is die basiese beginsels, maar oorweeg wat u sal doen as die voorsiening oral opraak, en daar is nie meer gerieflike, ingemaakte en verpakte oorlewingsvoedsel wat ons kan eet nie? Wat dan?

Daar is 'n paar opsies in hierdie geval, en dit is belangrik om vooruit te beplan en voor te berei om daaraan te werk, indien nodig.

Kos soek en versamel

Voedsel soek is 'n proses om u plaaslike omgewing te ondersoek na voedsel wat u kan eet. Gewoonlik gaan dit na wilde gebiede om te sien wat eetbaar, ryp en beskikbaar is om te versamel. Opruiming is 'n ander tegniek wat behels dat jy in die veld of boorde gaan nadat hulle geoes is om die oorskiet op te vang.

Albei is lewensvatbare tegnieke om kos in te samel, maar as u na 'n SHTF -geleentheid, en vir sommige soorte kosse, opdoen, sal dit slegs vir 'n enkele seisoen goed wees. Voering is egter 'n vaardigheid wat noodsaaklik is vir langtermyn oorlewing, aangesien natuurlike ekosisteme selfsaai en simbioties is, wat seisoen na seisoen en jaar na jaar lewensonderhoud bied.

Om plaaslike wilde kos te soek, verg 'n gevorderde begrip van u plaaslike ekosisteem - en u moet uself as deel daarvan beskou, nie apart nie van dit as u op hierdie manier langtermyn wil oorleef. Dit beteken dat voedsel vir die ander diere gelaat word, en dat die plante ook self kan saai. Oes van die plaaslike plante, bome en diere sal noodsaaklik wees vir langtermyn oorlewing. Dit het ook die voordeel dat dit eintlik ook vir u gesonder is-omdat die meeste wilde, onbewerkte plante digter is as wat hulle betreklik bitter smaak toon-en nie te veel geteel is om die soetheid te verbeter nie.

Kos soek is egter nie sonder gevare nie. Vir die onopgeleide oog, en selfs met veldgidse (waarin u moet belê), kan daar plante en swamme lyk wat ewe veilig is, verteer en vergiftig word-maar dit word maklik vermy deur opleiding deur kundiges .

As u tans nie vertroud is met u omgewing nie, of die gebied waarna u van plan is om te gaan, maak seker dat u kontak maak met plaaslike veldboere en wildernisgidse wat u kan leer wat hulle weet van die plaaslike flora en fauna. You will be surprised how much your perspective and perception changes once you start looking at the wild plants around you as sources of sustenance and survival. Once you have your new knowledge, be sure to actively forage in all seasons. Practice the techniques you will eventually use to survive, and teach them to others as well.

If you are planning to stay in your bug out area long term (and not planning to become nomadic) you will need to be capable of growing your own food from season to season, and storing out of season foods as well. This means having the facilities, tools, skills, seeds, cultivatable land, and access to water that is required to grow your own crops to harvest.

Consider investing in an heirloom seed saving kit, or (if you haven’t already) start your own garden now. Consult with more experienced gardeners and farmers and learn how to seed save yourself and start swapping varieties with others. It’s vital to have the seeds of life ready for planting, because without them you certainly will not be able to materialize any real food at all.

Branch out and experiment

Start now with experimental cooking and recipes to expand not only your skill-set, but your taste buds so that natural foods won’t be a complete shock to your system when SHTF. Even if you theoretically know how to cook over an open fire, do so more frequently so that you can hone your skills.

Mix up new dishes using unusual greens (like dandelion), local pine nuts, fruits, and berries. If you don’t yet hunt certain types of small game animals for food (because you don’t het to) be sure to brush up on your skills and practice trapping and catching smaller animals. Purchase or build the tools and traps, and practice the techniques you’ll need to harvest them. Once you start catching them, cook them up and get your family used to the flavor. In a SHTF situation the last thing you want is a bunch of picky eaters.

Experiment by cooking with not only fresh and seasonal wild fruits, nuts, berries, and greens, but fungi as well. Take an introduction to fungi class – you’d be surprised how many are actually edible and it can get you through in wet weather. Fungi hunting (and eating) is not without its dangers as well so make sure your skill-set is in top form, and never eat a fungi you are uncertain about.

If you train with experienced foragers and fungi hunters and volunteer with local gardening groups you’ll gain the essential skills you’ve need to survive long-term. If you dedicate time to learning these things you will be light-years ahead of others and well on your way to enduring survival should the SHTF.

Also, change your mindset from merely surviving, to healing, and becoming healthier and stronger in the process of rebuilding your life and home. Learn all you can about the nutrients you’ll need to survive, and then gain the knowledge and skills to make those nutrient containing foods easily and readily available to you and your family.

In a truly horrific SHTF situation paradigms are going to change and it’s important to possess the skills you’ll need to not only survive, but thrive in that kind of situation. Be prepared.

Surviving Long-term After the SHTF

As preppers and survivalists we’ve trained ourselves hard. We’re continually working on acquiring the knowledge and skills that can help us beat the odds and survive a catastrophic event. We prepare for the worst, while planning for long term survival. We know that there may be a few harrowing months, or even years, that will require extra attention, grit, and endurance. However, we also have to consider that in the case of a SHTF event there may be some rebuilding and restructuring that needs to come after. Planning for long-term survival (think years and decades) needs to be a part of our preparations as well.

Food.Shelter.Water. These are the basics, but consider what you’ll do when the provisions run out, everywhere, and there are no more pre-portioned, canned, and packaged convenient survival foods for us to eat? Wat dan?

There are a few options in this case and it’s important to plan ahead and prepare to work towards them if the need arises.

Foraging and gleaning

Foraging is a process of scouting your local area for foods you can eat. It usually involves heading into wild areas to see what’s edible, ripe, and available for collection. Gleaning is another technique that involves going into fields or orchards after they’ve been harvested to collect the leftovers.

Both are viable techniques to gather food, but in the case of gleaning after a SHTF event, and for some types of foods, will only be good for a single season. Foraging, however, is a skill that will be essential to long-term survival as natural ecosystems are self-seeding and symbiotic, providing sustenance season after season and year after year.

Foraging for local wild foods requires an advanced understanding of your local ecosystem – and you need to see yourself as part of it, not apart van it if you want to survive long-term in this way. This means leaving food for the other animals, and allowing the plants to self-seed as well. Harvesting from the local plants, trees, and animals will be essential to long-term survival. It also has the added benefit of actually being healthier for you as well – since most wild uncultivated plants are more nutrient dense as made apparent by their comparatively bitter taste – and have not been over-bred to enhance sweetness.

Foraging is not without its dangers though. To the untrained eye, and even with field guides (which you should invest in), there can be look-alike plants and fungi that you think are safe, consume, and get poisoned by – but they are easily avoided with some training by experts.

If you’re currently unfamiliar with your area, or the area you plan to bug out to, make sure you get in touch with local foragers and wilderness guides who can teach you what they know about the local flora and fauna. You will be surprised how much your perspective and perception changes once you start looking at the wild plants around you as sources of sustenance and survival.

This means having the facilities, tools, skills, seeds, cultivatable land, and access to water that is required to grow your own crops to harvest.

Consider investing in an heirloom seed saving kit, or (if you haven’t already) start your own garden now. Consult with more experienced gardeners and farmers and learn how to seed save yourself and start swapping varieties with others. It’s vital to have the seeds of life ready for planting, because without them you certainly will not be able to materialize any real food at all.

Branch out and experiment

Start now with experimental cooking and recipes to expand not only your skill-set, but your taste buds so that natural foods won’t be a complete shock to your system when SHTF. Even if you theoretically know how to cook over an open fire, do so more frequently so that you can hone your skills.

Mix up new dishes using unusual greens (like dandelion), local pine nuts, fruits, and berries. If you don’t yet hunt certain types of small game animals for food (because you don’t het to) be sure to brush up on your skills and practice trapping and catching smaller animals. Purchase or build the tools and traps, and practice the techniques you’ll need to harvest them. Once you start catching them, cook them up and get your family used to the flavor. In a SHTF situation the last thing you want is a bunch of picky eaters.

Experiment by cooking with not only fresh and seasonal wild fruits, nuts, berries, and greens, but fungi as well. Take an introduction to fungi class – you’d be surprised how many are actually edible and it can get you through in wet weather. Fungi hunting (and eating) is not without its dangers as well so make sure your skill-set is in top form, and never eat a fungi you are uncertain about.

If you train with experienced foragers and fungi hunters and volunteer with local gardening groups you’ll gain the essential skills you’ve need to survive long-term. If you dedicate time to learning these things you will be light-years ahead of others and well on your way to enduring survival should the SHTF.

Also, change your mindset from merely surviving, to healing, and becoming healthier and stronger in the process of rebuilding your life and home. Learn all you can about the nutrients you’ll need to survive, and then gain the knowledge and skills to make those nutrient containing foods easily and readily available to you and your family.

In a truly horrific SHTF situation paradigms are going to change and it’s important to possess the skills you’ll need to not only survive, but thrive in that kind of situation. Be prepared.
