Our Founders, Chris Sorensen and Robin Sorensen, built Firehouse Subs from a family legacy of entrepreneurship and service – and a love of great food! We serve hearty portions of flavorful food, including our signature specialty subs. Customers come back time and again for our freshly made sandwiches, unique branding, and friendly customer service.

Since our founding in 1994, we’ve grown from a single location in our hometown of Jacksonville to include nearly 1300 restaurants in the United States, Canada, and the Puerto Rico. To us, operating a business is about more than just offering good products – it’s about doing good in our community. Over the years, our Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted over $75 million to first responders and other public safety organizations in the United States, as well as over $2.5 million to organizations across Canada.
