Chowder House: All Quiznos had to offer with more on the menu

Christina Gotfried, who opened a Quiznos restaurant in the South Coast Shopping Center in Harbor in 2006, has changed the restaurant’s name to Chowder House, and expanded the menu.

“It’s Quiznos with a name change,” Gotfried said. She said she wants all of her customers to know that they will still be able to get the items that they prefer, including all the same toasted sandwiches, plus new items she was unable to serve under her franchise agreement.

She explained that she couldn’t even add chocolate milk or a pastrami sandwich to the menu as long as she was franchised as Quiznos.

“We want to have the flexibility to put items on our menu that our customers request,” she said. “We are still offering quick service and our previous value menu with toasted subs, soups, and salad items.”

As the new name suggests, added items do include Boston white clam chowder as one of the six daily soups served in a sourdough bread bowl, if preferred, including smoked salmon chowder, crab and corn chowder, or seafood gumbo.

Gotfried explained, “We wanted to offer our customers the same quality, quantity and consistency, focusing on them and what they want.

“Try our new additions such as a crab melt, pastrami sandwich, corned beef, teriyaki chicken, a gyro with lamb or beef, and a shrimp salad,” Gotfried

She wants her clients to know that the former popular Quiznos items will remain on the menu.

“When we purchased the franchise, we felt that Quiznos was going in the right direction, but at this time we want to focus on our customers and what they are requesting,” Gotfried emphasized.

The Chowder House is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The phone number remains the same — 541-412-SUBS (7827).

  • Asia drained by HK unrest, China PMI offers minor relief
    Asian shares slumped on Wednesday as continued civil unrest in Hong Kong and a downbeat day on Wall Street sapped confidence, while the dollar index was close to a four-year high after marking its best quarterly gain in six years. European stocks were expected to follow suit, ahead of manufacturing data for Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Financial spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE 100 and Germany's DAX to down 0.3 percent each, and France's CAC 40 to open 0.4 percent lower. Trading in Asia was subdued with China closed for National Day and investors warily monitoring Hong Kong's pro-democracy unrest, as thousands of protesters stepped up pressure on the city's pro-Beijing government.

    German sportswear maker Adidas, facing investor discontent over its underperforming share price, announced a plan on Wednesday to buy back up to 1.5 billion euros ($1.89 billion) in shares over the next three years. Adidas said in a statement the shareholder return program would be predominantly financed from the group's free cash flow, adding share buybacks would start in the fourth quarter and be completed by Dec. 31, 2017. Adidas, which has been losing market share in its home territory of western Europe to Nike and has failed to make serious inroads in North America, has seen its shares fall by more than a third this year.
