The Founders of Firehouse Subs

Welcome to Firehouse!

It’s got some serious meat to it

Growing up in a family that is both entrepreneurial and built on decades of fire and police service, it seems we were destined to start Firehouse Subs®. Of course we tried other things along the way to our American Dream – rock ’n’ roll, real estate, and even Christmas tree farming. But everything we experienced on our path led us to Firehouse Subs.

25 Years Later

With more than 1,180 Firehouse Subs Restaurants

People come back when they’re treated well and fed well. Turns out, people absolutely LOVE the same things we do – the best meats, cheeses, and toppings we can find. People come back again and again because, unlike other sub places, we steam our meats and cheeses, releasing a rush of flavors, then stuff a serving that’s way over code on one of our toasted private-recipe sub rolls. It’s a winning combination that satisfies ravenous appetites and the value-conscious alike.

Our Future

We like to call our growth a "controlled burn"

Passing 1,170 locations in the U.S. and Canada, our expansion is carefully calculated. Rest assured there’s a Firehouse coming your way. As they say in the fire station, let’s eat!
