Quiznos Rant

Ok, first, I have to preface this by saying I nearly never visit any kind of fast food place mostly because of health concerns (if only a Big Mac were healthy, alas, it isn't!) but yesterday, by necessity and time constraints ran into the Quiznos downstairs from my office.

I tried one of their new Flatbread Salads, the Chicken Ceasar, which surprisingly, was not all that bad. I didn't use any dressing but I did taste it. I had them leave off at least 1/2 the cheese and olives and only ate 1/2 the flatbread because I normally watch my fat intake if I'm not eating something chow-worthy. And Quiznos certainly does NOT fit the profile of chow-worthy in my book.

I didn't miss the dressing at all as the chicken actually had quite a bit of flavor to it. The flatbread was tasty albeit a tad too buttery, the lettuce was a decent, fresh mixture of greens. All in all I was surprised to enjoy this salad as I completely expected it to be terrible.

Which leads me to my complaint. Why does this chain still resist posting the nutrition for their products? They list only a bare minium (maybe a few of their sandwiches at best). I think they are the hold-outs in this. I know all of the other fast food joints make a great effort to accommodate those of us who are attempting to try and be a bit healthier and it just irks me how belligerent Quiznos is about keeping this info so secretive.

I asked at the counter, knowing that they are supposed to keep this in-store because of allergy issues and such, to no avail. They claim ignorance. I attempted to reach customer service again to no avail.

I'm basically just venting here. But if someone has some way of accessing some mysterious website which lists this info, please post it!
