Quiznos Sub, the fastest-growing restaurant chain in the country, is apparently being shopped around to potential buyers for as much as $2 billion. The popular sandwich franchise placed second on our just-released Franchise 500 list, which ranks the top U.S. franchises to own. MSNBC.com reports that private equity firms are expected to be the most interested. Earlier this week, Dunkin’ Brands–owner of Dunkin’ Donuts, Baskin-Robbins ice cream parlors and Togo’s Eatery sandwich stores– was also sold to private equity firms for a reported $2.43 billion. Dunkin’ Donuts ranked No. 6 on our Franchise 500.
