Meet your Area Representative (AR)
Your application will be forwarded to the Area Representative overseeing development in your intended market area. He/She will contact you to discuss the details. Should you become a Firehouse Subs franchisee, this Area Representative will train and mentor you throughout your tenure.
Attend Discovery Sessions
Typically held twice a month on Fridays, franchise candidates are invited to Firehouse Subs Headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla. to meet department heads and senior management. You’ll learn our history, get further insight on our supportive infrastructure, learn each department’s role, and so much more. It’s a full day of getting to know your future partners.
Regardless of background or experience, every candidate is then required to work in one of our training restaurants for one week (five days). This self-directed time provides immense insight into what is required to own and operate a Firehouse Subs franchise.
Execute Your Franchise Agreement
After we complete a credit and background check, we will issue you a “Franchise Agreement.” Review and sign the agreement and you are officially a Firehouse Subs franchisee!
Find the right site & execute the lease
Your Area Representative and broker resources will help you find the right restaurant site. Once found, your Area Representative will assist you in submitting a site package to our Real Estate department for final approval.
Once you receive site approval from our Real Estate department, you will begin negotiating lease terms and work towards the execution of your lease. Once executed, work with your selected contractors to build-out your Firehouse Subs restaurant.
Open your Firehouse Subs!
Welcome to Firehouse - let the excitement begin! Your Area Representative will work alongside you and your crew, making sure your customers get the Firehouse Subs experience that brings them back again and again.
