Firehouse Subs | International Franchise Association
FireHouse Subs Franchise Business

Founded in Jacksonville, Florida by former firefighters and brothers Chris and Robin Sorensen, Firehouse Subs’ commitment to intense flavors, and extraordinary meats and cheeses piled high on a sub roll, remains the same today as it did when our first location opened more than 20 years ago. That passion for great food, heartfelt service and public safety has fueled our brand’s growth to more than 1,000 locations across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, with hundreds more in the works.

Featuring second-to-none sandwiches and a commitment to the communities we serve, Firehouse Subs has also given away more than $25 million to hometown heroes through our Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, whose mission is to provide funding, life-saving equipment and educational opportunities to our first responders.

As Firehouse Subs continues to grow, we are actively seeking entrepreneurs, business professionals and military veterans pursuing their American dream. As one of the country’s fastest growing restaurant brands, demand for our hot specialty subs and unique steaming method is creating opportunities for us to grow in new cities and existing markets. With our strong brand identity, excellent franchisee relationships, and a passionate executive leadership team firmly established, Firehouse Subs is well positioned for development with the right investor.
