Quiznos vs. Domino's

Watching television last night, I noticed an advertisement for Domino's...not for pizza (not even Oreo Pizza), not for Cinnastix, not for Chicken Kickers but for Oven Baked Sandwiches. Personally, when I think of oven baked sandwiches, I think of Subway and Quiznos...and I don't think I'm alone. I guess Domino's ain't havin' that.

It's a logical move considering the popularity of Subway and Quiznos...and the fact that you can't get delivery from either of those places. But did you know that Quiznos delivers in some areas? Indeed they do. However, it makes sense that they don't advertise this because it's only in certain areas...at certain times. Example: for those of you living in the Allentown, PA area, the Quiznos at Crest Plaza Shopping Center is delivering today between 10:00 AM-2:00 PM and 5:00 PM-7:00 PM. If they were planning on expanding those times and locations, Domino's just crushed their dreams.

Having food delivered to your house is definitely a convenience, and it's great to have if you're disabled, trying to save on gas, or just having an occasional lazy night when you don't feel like cooking. But how far is the demand of American laziness going to go when they opt for Domino's because they don't feel like leaving their home for other junk food?
