New fast food options?
« on: January 25, 2010, 07:41:00 PM »
Looks like we'll be getting two new fast food options in the neighborhood. Any idea where?

From the Daily News:

B.K. Sinha, who develops franchises in the New York area for Submarina California Subs, has the same goal for his restaurant - the first New York branch of the West Coast-based sandwich shop.

He decided Astoria would be the perfect place to introduce Submarina to the city when it opens Thursday.

"We decided to start in Queens to build our brand recognition," said Bev Rich, senior director of franchise development at Wingstop, a chain that sells specialty chicken wings.

Wingstop has 435 restaurants around the country, and its first in New York is set to open in Astoria this spring. The local franchisee, Mac Khahera, is a native of Queens.

how do they set themselves apart from the usual subway's, quizno's, blimpie's fanfare?

i've seen the "coming soon" sign for what seems like forever in that ice cream shop.  glad to see somethings actually arrived.

Maybe they've got a pepper bar, but I bet you can't get Quiznos' subs with sprinkles and chopped nuts!

3 ways they are different than subways and blimpies are, 1) they slice the coldcuts to order like a deli and not presliced like subways and blimpies,2) you get more meat (so my son says) and 3) they are more expensive .
Like firelight said, theres not much room in there. When it starts getting warm and people go in for ice cream  its not going to be comfortable to eat in there.
and finally a note to Mr. Stewart.  It's good to see you haven"t lost a step.

Any recommendations from the list?
