Quiznos, in collaboration with Crypto.com and The NFT Agency, has announced a debut series of non-fungible tokens — marking the restaurant chain’s launch into the NFT space. Proceeds from the one-day sale of each sandwich NFT token will support a nonprofit organization focused on ending hunger for communities and countries in crisis.
The collection, titled Quiznos “Out of this World”, will feature adventurous astronauts embarking on a brave mission to different planets throughout the crypto galaxy — with the purpose of introducing innovative and alternative methods of sustainability.
The drop goes LIVE at 9am EST on Monday November 15th, 2021 and is available for 24 hours ONLY on Crypto.com NFT.
The incredible artwork was created by Sameer Baloch, a wildly talented digital artist hailing from Oman. Since signing with The NFT Agency, Sameer’s detailed, futuristic and bold pieces have made a splash in the NFT collector community in a major way. From his widely popular 3D generative Laid Back Llamas project to designing NFTs for big named celebrities and athletes, Sameer continues to innovate and remain a pioneer in the community.
For its entry into the NFT space, Quiznos tapped The NFT Agency, a marketplace consultancy that connects creators, communities and brands through unique NFT experiences with ownable digital content. After dominating the space for almost a year, The NFT Agency is proud to once again bring one of it’s stunning artists to the forefront of the NFT space.
According to NFT Agency’s Chief Operating Officer Jesse Galati, “Sameer has built a reputation among the art and NFT community through his jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind 3D artwork. His brilliant and artistic mind is behind some of the most exciting NFT projects happening right now.”
Quiznos plans to donate proceeds from its “Out of this World” token sales to the World Central Kitchen (WCK), a nonprofit founded by Chef José Andrés that uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond.
“This is an exciting opportunity for digital coin collectors to pair their love of the planet, unique art and our boldly-flavored food with an act of generosity for the global good. We’re excited to take this one small step into the NFT space and look forward to exploring more ways we can virtually — and maybe someday physically — plant flags for our out-of-this world Quiznos sandwiches in space,” said Mark Lohmann, President of REGO Restaurant Group, which owns Quiznos.
Becoming a global powerhouse franchise takes dedication, innovation and a knack for exploration into new frontiers. This drive for newborn understanding and imagination separate those who excel in this rapidly changing environment, from the static individuals who are left behind. Founded in 1981, Quiznos has had 40 years of prosperity, and quite frankly global domination, with their legendary toasted submarine sandwiches. With over 500 locations worldwide, Quiznos recognizes the importance of building an extensive community and providing their loyal customers with a reliable, contemporary, and of course, delicious product.
The NFT Agency is excited to partner with such a deserving charity, and of course, a brand like Quiznos who prioritizes their love for the planet and generosity to nonprofits. Stay tuned for more information about the drop on all the socials linked below!
