Firehouse Subs® Expands with First Restaurant in Newmarket
Firehouse Subs Canada continues to expand its footprint with the latest opening in Newmarket. Located at 47 Harry Walker Parkway South, Unit 3 Newmarket, ON L3Y 0G3, the restaurant opens its doors under the ownership of Firehouse Subs franchisee Jonathan Chang.
Chang worked as an entrepreneur in the web, print and film industries for most of his career before venturing into the restaurant space. When learning about Firehouse Subs, all aspects of the business resonated with Chang, especially the commitment to supporting local first responders. Chang opened the Firehouse Subs Bradford location in 2020 and is thrilled to bring his newest location to Newmarket.
“Another location means more opportunities to support our local heroes and public safety organizations which is a huge part of the Firehouse Subs mission that I’m honoured to carry on,” said Jonathan Chang. “Firehouse Subs is such a unique brand and I'm excited to bring our lifesaving subs to the Newmarket community.”
Chang is dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada, which has granted more than $2 million to hometown heroes in Ontario.
For each new Firehouse Subs location, a custom mural is commissioned and hand-painted by Chief Mural Officer, Joe Puskas. Every mural is unique to its community and the restaurant, with this one paying homage to past and present firefighters. It features the original Newmarket fire hall built in 1866, alongside the brand-new fire station belonging to Central York Fire Services which protects the Aurora and Newmarket communities.
The Newmarket Davis Drive location boasts the new Community Design restaurant concept, featuring enhancements made to provide a better dining experience for guests, in addition to a new back-of-the-house layout with a more efficient flow for crew members.
Firehouse Subs at Newmarket opens its doors today, February 26 at 10:30 a.m. The restaurant will be open every day from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
