PeeJay. It is clear to anyone who reads this that you have never been downtown during lunch in your entire life.
Having owned a business in the same building as subway, let met lightly suggest that you don't seem to know what you are talking about.
On Hogan Street, the spots are 15 minute parking, and all nine of them are shared in common with the 11 businesses that line that block. Across the street on monroe you cannot park because it is the United States Federal Court House, There are four other spots on the same side of the street.
The Quizno's owner will have owned a business in a building downtown, too, once the franchise closes. Doesn't mean they have any expertise in downtown policy or business ownership. Still don't see the connection between the failing of this business, which is connected to a parking garage, and parking while others in similar or worse locations are doing fine and thriving. Perhaps demographically, only super-lazy people go to Quiznos? Of course, that doesn't work when you consider Subway in a worse location.
NRW: 2 block walk?!? In downtown? So a 2 block walk is the most you ever have to make in downtown Jacksonville? That is not a parking issue.
And rarely parking at On the Fly? It is in an empty parking lot, with street parking out front!
