Owners Jeff and Jen Finnerty are bringing Firehouse Subs, a U.S.-based fast food chain to Connecticut in their beautiful community of Glastonbury. Adjancent to the Fox Run Shopping Center (where Whole Foods Market is housed) this neighborhood focused sub shop is located in the heart of Main Street Glastonbury!

Step into this bright sandwich shop and prepare to be dazzled! There are bold bright red and white tiles, firehouse memorabilia, and friendly, smiling faces to greet you. With its brick facade, chunky wood tables, and comfortable "firehouse red" seating, it invokes a feeling of the community firehouses of yesteryear!

Invited as part of a soft-media information session, I was able to sample a few of their signature subs and listen in on the background of the business from the organization's co-founder Robin Sorenson, a former firefighter who now oversees franchise operations in 44 states and over 960 locations!
I sampled two subs, the Hook & Ladder® Sub and the Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket™ Sub - both were delicious, piled high with meat, flavorful sauces and spreads, and soft fresh bread.
Hook & Ladder® Sub, served with fresh sliced daily
smoked turkey breast and Virginia honey ham
smothered with Monterey Jack cheese.
|Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket™ loaded with USDA choice beef brisket |
smoked for at least 16 hours in an authentic Texas smokehouse
topped with melted cheddar cheese and a special combination of sauces,
including Sweet Baby Ray’s® Barbecue Sauce.
While Robin was filling in the rest of our group in on the history of Firehouse Subs, I had the chance to sit and chat with franchisee Jeff and hear his vision for the shop. He's so proud of his community roots and is looking to grow the Firehouse Sub brand in more towns in Connecticut! Lucky us!
Besides serving really great sandwiches made with fresh ingredients, what separates Firehouse Subs from other sandwich shops is their dedication and commitment to the community, specifically the civic services. In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation® with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. Many first responders make do with older equipment and have limited or no access to needed resources. The 501(c)(3) Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has given more than $17 million to hometown heroes in 44 states and Puerto Rico.
Each restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $2 donation to the Foundation. Donation canisters on register counters explain the nonprofit’s mission and collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.
