American sandwich chain Quiznos on Wednesday signed a master franchise agreement to open 15 outlets in Kuwait.

Over the next two years, Quiznos plans to grow the brand's international footprint to more than 40 countries and territories.

Quiznos, a subsidiary of QIP Holder LLC, has nearly 4,000 restaurants.
