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).

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
