As the CCM Dining Services provider we also do a price analysis of the current food market surrounding CCM.  Dare2Compare shows us that we are in line and most of the time cheaper than other comparable food service providers.  Our Quiznos prices are also the same as other area Quiznos. Quiznos can also be compared to Jimmy Johns in which our prices are also cheaper than. Copies of the analysis are posted around our locations.
