Downtown Topeka’s Quiznos Classic Subs closed its doors permanently on Monday.

 

The restaurant, located at 809 S. Kansas Ave., is franchise owned, said Quiznos’ corporate spokeswoman Mimi Dell. She did not give the franchisee’s name, but confirmed he also owns the franchise at 5927 S.W. 29th St.

“There’s a lot of different reasons why they may choose to close,” she said. “It’s such a difficult decision to make.”

Previous stories in the Capital-Journal indicate the restaurant is owned by Brenda and Dave Wenrich. They could not be reached for comment.

Jim Klausman, who owns the Kansas Avenue building where the Quizno’s was located, said the decision to close the restaurant came from the Quiznos owners; he did not request that the company vacate the building.

He plans to lease the building.
