Renowned for hearty, oversized portions and piping hot subs, Firehouse Subs announces plans for an expansion in Puerto Rico, in its first move outside the continental United States. With 441 locations, the restaurant chain plans to open 26 restaurants on the island in the next few years, with an ultimate goal of 50 to 60 locations. The chain is famous for piping hot subs with premium meats and cheeses piled high atop toasted sub rolls served “Fully InvolvedÂ®” with fresh produce. The authentic firehouse setting is based on the founders’ 200 years of firefighting experience.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring the Firehouse Subs brand to the island of Puerto Rico,” said Don Fox, CEO of Firehouse Subs. “In Caribbean Restaurant Group, we have found the perfect franchise partner. They have decades of experience in the restaurant business in Puerto Rico, and a superb reputation for operational excellence. The citizens of Puerto Rico have an appetite for bold, rich flavors, and we are confident they will find Firehouse Subs to be a great addition to the island’s culinary scene.”
