Overview / Comments

Firehouse Subs’ mission is “to carry on our commitment to and passion for hearty and flavorful food, heartfelt service, and public safety”. Firehouse brand subs are unique. The franchise uses only choice products that are several levels higher in quality over the competition. The portions are hearty, with large subs containing a half pound of meat. The steaming process brings the flavor out of the meat and cheese, while adding moisture and not drying the sandwich out.

The company’s core business is repeat customers, but in summer and during holidays the location also capitalizes on tourists and travelers. The business has remained consistent the last few years regarding sales and employee count. It was expected that 2020 revenue would have significantly increased if Covid had not hit.

There is one other food establishment in the vicinity that offers a different menu. It usually comes down to preference or proximity as to who the customer will ultimately choose to patronize on a given day.
Growth/Expansion Opportunities: A new owner who continues working as the general manager will see more profit annually. Other opportunities to provide cost savings include internalizing the bookkeeping and payroll. Additionally, the largest opportunity for growth is catering, which has higher profit margins.
