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.

This is actually a huge blow to downtown Topeka, because Quiznos was one of the few businesses that exists on Kansas Avenue.  All of the tax dollars wasted down there and all of the tax giveaways to the Ponzi scheme hotel guy haven't amounted to anything except even fewer businesses downtown.  Didn't the Ponzi scheme hotel guy say that there were "big announcements about big things coming to downtown Topeka"?  What happened to those announcements?  And what's taking so long with his hotel?  They should have started construction a long time ago.  He's already conned a few local businesses to give him money, so maybe he's looking for a few more suckers to give him even more before he declares bankruptcy on the hotel and leaves that part of Kansas Avenue a wasteland.

You're an ignorant loon. That guy is responsible for hundreds of high paying jobs. The hotel is under construction. What have you achieved?
