The Star of Texas Bowl is one of the biggest events in Texas Rollergirls history, bringing dozens of the best roller derby athletes in the world to Austin and requiring a huge amount of hard work from hundreds of volunteers. With so many hands on deck, we’re expecting some big appetites this weekend and we’re excited to have some very special sponsors coming on board to keep the show rolling along. Today we’re profiling our favorite sandwich joint, Quiznos, who are a key sponsor for the 2012 Star of Texas Bowl.
Can you tell us a bit about your business?
Think all sub sandwiches are equal? Horseradish! Toasting is a wake-up call for flavor! We’ve been sandwich-toasting fanatics since the first day we opened our doors. Everything gets toasted at Quiznos. Heck, if it doesn’t come from Quiznos, it’s gonna leave you cold!
What’s unique about Quiznos?
We choose not to cut corners and offer an superior product. Anyone can take a footlong, and stuff it with lettuce. We choose to rise above and let you taste, the high quality meats and cheeses that we are proud to serve. At Quiznos, there is an option for everyone. From a lighter soup and salad combo, to a hearty Double Cheese Prime Rib Sub. From Sub Sliders with Meatballs and Mozzarella, to our Original Italian. We’ve got something for everyone!
(Texas Rollergirls like to think we have something for everyone, too! Serious sport, serious fun: this is Roller Derby!)
What’s your favorite thing about Austin?
There is always something happening. From music festivals, to art exhibits to ROLLER DERBY!
How long have you been in business? Who are the owners?
Quiznos franchise-holders in Austin are an extraordinary selection of everyday people. Newly married couples. Experienced Entrepreneurs. Parents with kids at UT. Brothers, who decided to open a restaurant. A husband and wife team, both retired United States Marines.
Why have you chosen to sponsor the Star of Texas Bowl?
Roller derby takes something traditional, roller skating, and amps it up 1000%. We like to think that we take the traditional sub shop and do the same.
Are there any special deals for Texas Rollergirls fans?
Yup! If the Texecutioners win, show your ticket stub for a free drink and chips.
If your business played derby, what would the derby name be?
Our team would be the TEXAS TOASTERS.
