Local Husband and Wife Duo Open Boca Raton’s Second Firehouse Subs

September 09, 2019 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Fla. - Firehouse Subs announces the grand opening of its second location in Boca Raton, Florida at 7148-B Beracasa Way. The restaurant will open its doors to the public on Friday, September 6, under the ownership of first-time Firehouse Subs Franchisees Sadia and Sher Baig. Firehouse Subs serves a variety of hot specialty subs, piled high with premium meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh daily in-restaurant and steamed together to bring out the ingredients’ natural flavors, served “Fully Involved®” with fresh produce and condiments. In addition to its signature subs, the restaurant offers a variety of catering options from sandwich and dessert platters to salads and snacks to fuel any occasion.

This is the husband and wife duo’s first venture into the restaurant industry. Sadia Baig has a background in economics and accounting while Sher Baig works in the healthcare industry. The two fell in love with the brand after their first taste of Firehouse Subs’ hot specialty subs shortly after moving to Florida three years ago.

“My husband and I are huge advocates of giving back to the community, and we are excited to do that through our first Firehouse Subs restaurant,” Sadia Baig said. “When we found out how the brand helps first responders and communities across the country through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, we knew this was the perfect fit for us. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Boca Raton community in to our family business.”

The Baigs are dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to hearty and flavorful food, heartfelt service and giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted more than $7.2 million in Florida. A portion of every sale at any Firehouse Subs in the U.S. benefits the Foundation, allowing the Foundation to achieve its mission of providing lifesaving equipment, funding and education to first responders and public safety organizations across the country.

The Boca Raton Firehouse Subs restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. seven days a week. It will offer third-party delivery and in-house catering services to accommodate occasions of all sizes, from office meetings to family gatherings.

Founded by former firefighting brothers, the restaurant décor includes a custom, hand-painted mural by Chief Mural Artist Joe Puskas, featuring local heroes from Boca Raton Fire Rescue in front of the scenic Boca Raton coastline. The Baigs’ two sons, Rafael and Rayan are also featured in the mural along with their family dog, Zeus. Since the opening of the first Firehouse Subs in 1994, Puskas and his team have painted more than 1,170 murals from his studio at Firehouse Subs Headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla.

In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, lifesaving equipment and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. The 501(c)(3) Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $44 million to hometown heroes in 49 states, Puerto Rico and Canada. Each restaurant recycles 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.
