No, not bikinis; Barbecue!

Quiznos is celebrating the start of the summer season by bringing back the sweet smells of barbecue with the Southern BBQ Pulled Pork Sub and Quiznos Cuban Sub. Both menu items will be offered for a limited time beginning in June and will run through the summer months.

Inspired by the Miami-area staple, Quiznos Cuban Sub brings a Latin flare to good, old-fashioned barbecue and is the perfect way to kick off summer. The slow-smoked pulled pork, topped with delectable honey ham, crisp pickles and Swiss cheese lends itself well to Quiznos time-honored toasting tradition.

In addition to the Cuban Sub, Quiznos is bringing back the guest-favorite Southern BBQ Sub, now in its third year. Quiznos Southern BBQ Sub is requested year-round by guests who like it sweet and smoky.

“We know that Americans love barbecue,” said Quiznos Chief Marketing Officer Susan Lintonsmith. “Barbecue recipes can be spicy, sweet, southern, and just about any other style you want them to be. For us, that’s toasty. We’re celebrating the start of summer by bringing not-so-standard barbecue to guests in our signature, toasty style. We’ve put our own twist on the Cuban sub, and created something that can’t be found in your average sub shop.”

Quiznos new Cuban Sub follows a classic recipe with a kick, boasting slow-roasted pulled pork and honey ham topped with melted Swiss cheese, crunchy pickles, mayonnaise and mustard – a unique alternative to the Southern BBQ Pulled Pork Sub.

The Memphis-style Southern BBQ Pulled Pork Sub is hand crafted with slow-roasted pulled pork and topped with mozzarella and cheddar cheese, pickles, Quiznos signature BBQ sauce and mustard, all on your choice of toasted artisan bread.

Starting at just $4.99, both barbecue subs highlight all-natural, slow-roasted pulled pork that is infused with Quiznos signature barbecue sauce overnight, creating just the right barbecue flavor.
