Firehouse Subs is a fast casual restaurant chain with a passion for Hearty and Flavorful Food, Heartfelt Service and Public Safety. Founded by brothers and former firefighters Chris Sorensen and Robin Sorensen, Firehouse Subs is a brand built on decades of fire and police service, steaming hot subs piled high with premium meats and cheeses, and its commitment to saving lives through the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The company is built upon a family of franchise operators who share their same passion for serving others. We are now seeking new franchise partners in Ontario.
The Firehouse Subs Story After years of firefighting, the Sorensen brothers opened their first Firehouse Subs location in 1994. Now, with over 1000 restaurants later, in the United States, Puerto Rico and now Canada with hundreds of additional locations in the works, local communities continue welcoming Firehouse Subs’ heartfelt service and hearty servings.
Community Service In 2005, Firehouse Subs created Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. Through our non-profit, Firehouse Subs has given more than $20 million to hometown heroes in 43 US states, Puerto Rico and now Canada. As our founders often say, “Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is the heart of Firehouse Subs.” Our customers respect this deep commitment to keeping their communities safe. When franchisees and restaurant owners work with local groups and public safety entities, transaction counts go up, unit sales increase and customer loyalty climbs significantly.
