When you think of firefighters, the first thought that comes to mind may be heroic. But have you ever considered combining these heroes with a sub shop? This is where the Firehouse Sub franchise comes in. The franchise was founded in 1994 and began franchising a year later. Two former firefighters, Robin and Chris Sorensen, founded the fast-casual concept in Jacksonville, Florida. Since then, the brand has expanded to over 1,200 locations across the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada. Customers can enjoy subs that are inspired by the firehouse. For example, you can order subs called Engineer, Hook and Ladder, and Firehouse Hero. To find the best locations that will add to their franchise owner's success, the brand calculates the location's potential, profitability, and investment. You will also work with the franchise's leadership team and a real estate broker to pick the right location and negotiate terms with the property owner. Franchise owners enjoy a proven system that streamlines the franchise opportunity by combining strategy and creativity to help you succeed. The franchise owner can also enjoy the franchise's marketing campaign that will get customers to your store. The brand strives to live by its motto "Our Way Beats Their Way," which sets them apart from the competition and applies to every aspect of the business. Additionally, it is known for its focus on exceptional customer service and innovative products. If you are looking to work with a nationally recognized franchise that offers quality subs to communities, then the Firehouse Subs franchise is for you.
