The Start of the Foundation

Hurricane Katrina’s wrath inspired Firehouse Subs founders, Chris Sorensen and Robin Sorensen, to establish the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation in the U.S., in 2005.

Ten years later, with the opening of the first Canadian restaurant in 2015, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada was born.
