Updated in January 2023! Blimpie is an American sub chain that enjoyed its heyday in the early 2000’s. But they still have several hundred restaurants across the U.S. Some are stand-alone locations while others are located inside businesses, like convenience stores, gas stations, sports arenas, hospitals, and office complexes.
Please note that Blimpie hasn’t updated their allergen information since 2016, but they also don’t change their menu much. They emailed the following to us:
Yes, the information on line is up to date. Our recipes and ingredients have not changed, thus there is no updates to be made. When there is a promotional item, the nutritional/allergen information is available upon request at the store. Since these items are temporary, they are not included in the mainstream menu information.
