Learn About Firehouse Subs Franchises
The creation of Firehouse Subs was based on our enthusiasm for food, love
for cooking, and passion for serving customers. We learned from our parents at
an early age that you have to take care of the customer. After trying our hand
at several different ventures both together, and on our own, we reunited and the
entrepreneurial juices started flowing.
We researched many ideas and concepts in the industry, and wanted to open a
microbrewery restaurant but couldn’t afford it. Subs were becoming a popular
niche. The more we talked about it, we knew we could create a sub that would
stand out among the rest. Large portions, fresh hot subs, and better service.
Financially however, we had to get creative to open up the first restaurant. Our
family and friends pitched in. Lots of blood, sweat and tears went into opening
the first store. Firehouse Subs has been serving the hottest subs in town ever
since opening day. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2004, and have opened
more than 240 locations throughout the southeast.
The Area Representative is the foundation upon which we are building our
franchise system. Rather than service our franchisees with a network of field
based employees, we have selected this entrepreneurial model as the primary
means to deliver services to our franchise community. We believe this model
provides a caliber of support and continuity of relationships that cannot be
achieved through traditional corporate-based models.
The Area Rep business model is built upon two key elements:
- The training restaurant
- A share of the royalty and fees (franchise and development) collected from
franchisees in the Area Representative’s territory
Our Area Reps must have experience in Multi-Unit Restaurant Management (with
profit center accountability). Experience in real estate, construction, and
marketing is highly preferred. Area Reps must demonstrate a dynamic personality;
work well with others; be able to lead through example and influence; and
understand the dynamics of the franchisor-franchisee relationship.
