Growing up in a family that is both entrepreneurial and built on decades of fire and police service, it seems we were destined to start Firehouse Subs®. Of course, we tried other things along the way to our American Dream – rock ’n’ roll, real estate, and even Christmas tree farming. But everything we experienced on our path led us to Firehouse Subs. Twenty-five years later, there are more than 1,180 firehouse subs restaurants.

You will receive marketing and advertising support (emphasizing a neighborhood-marketing methodology) through your Area Representative (AR), our advertising agency, and our corporate marketing staff. Led by your Area Representative, you and the other franchisees in the local market will work collaboratively to execute marketing programs at the market level (national programs may also be required by FOA). In addition, you’ll benefit from ongoing training, research and development of new products, regular dialogues with your AR, operations support and periodic business counseling.
The initial single-unit franchisee fee is $20,000. The average turnkey investment is approximately $350,000.
From first inquiry to opening the restaurant, the process takes about six to 12 months (depending on a number of factors, including site availability).
