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).

  • Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings
    Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's (MCD.N) and AT&T (NYS:T), are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results. The first batch of earnings came out as equities were working their way through a selloff led by trading-crowd favorites like Netflix and the biotech stocks.
  • Rajaratnam's brother loses bid to dismiss insider trading charges
    Rengan Rajaratnam, the younger brother of imprisoned hedge fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, on Friday lost a bid to dismiss some of the insider trading charges leveled against him last year. U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan ruled that the indictment adequately alleged the essential elements of the crimes charged. A lawyer for Rajaratnam did not respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara declined to comment.
  • Compensation battle rages four years after BP's U.S. oil spill
    Jules Melancon, the last remaining oyster fisherman on an island dotted with colorful houses on stilts, says he has not found a single oyster alive in his leases in the area since the leak and relies on an onshore oyster nursery to make a living. The British oil major has paid out billions of dollars in compensation under a settlement experts say is unprecedented in its breadth. Some claimants are satisfied, but others are irate that BP is now challenging aspects of the settlement. The oil company has spent over $26 billion on cleaning up, fines and compensation for the disaster, which killed 11 people on the rig and spilled millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days after the blast on April 20, 2010.
