What makes your business stand out?
Our dedication and attention to detail, from store design to our variety of products, separates us from other confectionery stores. We provide hundreds of fresh classic candies, chocolates, caramels, salt water taffy, nuts, and sugar free products. Our stores are designed with natural wood and rock features and a model train runs above our sales floor.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The kids have the best comments. We had a kid ask his parents if he could set up a cot and stay overnight. Another told his parents he wanted to live here because we had all his favorite food. We had another kid try one of our chocolates and tell her mom she had to try one also because it tasted like Heaven!
What’s your favorite part about your job?
People's faces light up when they walk into our candy store. My favorite part is when they find their favorite candy or chocolate that they haven't seen since they were a kid.
For more than 30 years, Quiznos has toasted its submarine sandwiches to bring out the hidden flavors found in butcher-quality meats, cheese, and artisan breads. Its classic and signature subs take on a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles ranging from the prime rib mushroom and swiss to the classic italian donning black olives, mozzarella, red-wine vinaigrette, and plentiful sliced meats. Those closely monitoring their waistlines can take unabashed bites of sandwiches that have fewer than 500 calories, such as the pork-cuban, Baja-chicken, and veggie-caprese subs. Quiznos' Toasty Bullets and Torpedoes offer slimmer versions of sub fare and flaunt supreme aerodynamics when shot out of T-shirt cannons and into mouths. A selection of Flatbread Sammies, soups, and salads round out Quiznos' varied menu.

Inside a 6,500-square-foot retail and instruction space, Dakota Stained Glass owner Ken Bird inspires merry bands of visitors to create glass-based masterpieces. The one-night glass-jewelry class introduces a technique known as fusing, in which individual fragments of colored glass are arranged in a specific design and run through a superheated kiln, rendering previously disparate pieces part of a harmonious mass. Under a Dakota Stained Glass expert’s tutelage, students are provided all the necessary tools, materials, and know-how to create four fused-glass pendants of their own conception, fulfilling aesthetic visions and filling bare body parts with bedazzling glass designs of abstract colors and all-seeing Elvis Presley heads. Several class dates and times are available for busy beekeepers and overworked warlocks alike.
