Where can you find the best BLIMPIE® sandwich in the country, served by the friendliest staff in the cleanliest restaurant? Blimpie International selected its Meridian, Idaho BLIMPIE restaurant as the best from the chain of nearly 1,600 locations. Franchisee Shelley Uzzel-Savage, who owns and operates the BLIMPIE at 521 South Main Street, accepted the title of BLIMPIE Best Restaurant featuring a prize package valued at $28,000 at the 2005 BLIMPIE Franchise Conference held in Miami August 1-4.

"I've always told my employees they were the best around - now it's proven. Their hospitality and hard work has paid off," said franchisee Shelley Uzzel-Savage. "I've owned my restaurant for nine years and I'm going to open another BLIMPIE restaurant with the prize money because I enjoy sharing the BLIMPIE experience with my customers."

The BLIMPIE Best Restaurant award is based on nominations from area representatives and customers, financial performance and customer feedback. In addition, 'mystery shoppers' were deployed throughout the year to secretly monitor quality, service and cleanliness. The BLIMPIE Best Restaurant excels at customer service, restaurant cleanliness, employee appearance, order accuracy, food quality, proper signage and B.I.P. Club frequency card distribution. From restaurants nominated this year, the field was narrowed down to 21 finalists.

Then, the finalists were visited by mystery shoppers twice during the month of June. Based on the mystery shopper aggregate score, positive customer feedback logs, increasing sales and input from area representatives, the finalists were narrowed to the top three restaurants in the country.
