The Firehouse Subs® Story
Born into an entrepreneurial family with decades of fire and police service, the Sorensen brothers were destined to become both firefighters and the founders of Firehouse Subs. Now, a short 18 years after opening their first restaurant, the brand has grown to 600+ restaurants nationwide, with even more ambitious expansion in the works. Featuring second-to-none sub sandwiches, and a commitment to the communities they serve, Firehouse Subs is a daily affirmation that serving good food and doing good belong together.
Our Way Beats Their Way
From the very first sub served in 1994, Firehouse Subs has been blazing the hot subs trail. Our unique steaming process awakens the flavors of our premium meats and cheeses, intensifying the taste. Stuffed way over code on toasted private recipe sub rolls and served in restaurants featuring authentic firefighting décor, it’s a combination people come back for again and again.
Spreading Like Wildfire
At headquarters, we like to call our growth a “controlled burn.” Passing 600 locations, our expansion is carefully calculated to optimize potential, profitability, investment, and of course, our franchisees’ success. Our plans show Firehouse Subs reaching 2,000 locations by 2020. As that’s a fire with some serious heat, it’s a good thing we were founded by firefighters.
