The BLIMPIE BEST Sandwich - Served at only the BEST locations
The BEST Gets Better
Peter DeCarlo, Tony Conza and Angelo Baldassare shared a big American Dream and
a simple restaurant idea: Stack the finest quality meats, cheeses and toppings
on freshly baked bread right in front of the customer. The idea for a name
appeared when they noticed that their new hoagie sandwich was similar in shape
to a "Blimp." They laughed and shouted, "BLIMPIE." And, the identity for
America's best dressed sandwich was born. Their first restaurant opened on April
4, 1964, in Hoboken, New Jersey. Today, BLIMPIE branded restaurants are located
in shopping centers, malls and as free-standing buildings. BLIMPIE sandwiches,
soups and salads are also available through convenience stores, gas station food
marts, colleges, hospitals, sports arenas, kiosks and even in vending machines.
Wherever people enjoy good food, BLIMPIE is there. Now is a great time to join
the BLIMPIE brand franchise family and to live your American Dream. Just ask Bob
Houghtalen, a best-dressed BLIMPIE brand franchisee and a healthier, satisfied
customer Stephen Kleva.

You explored several franchises, why the BLIMPIE brand?

BLIMPIE gave me the freedom to be my own boss while supporting me with an
established business model and proven systems.

great pride knowing I’m serving high-quality products and giving my customers a
great value. We’re always getting compliments.
Meet Stephen Kleva, a Satisfied BLIMPIE Customer.
When I was in college, I exercised regularly for two years. Everyday I’d eat a
junior ham and cheese sandwich with a bag of Sun Chips and an iced tea at my
neighborhood BLIMPIE. During that time I lost 100 pounds—Don’t I look great!—and
reached my goal of a healthy lifestyle. I want to thank everyone at BLIMPIE for
offering ‘fast food’ that’s a healthy alternative to all the unhealthy fast
