Local Husband and Wife Duo with 45 Years of Restaurant Industry Experience Open First Firehouse Subs in Baxter

December 17, 2019 // Franchising.com // BAXTER, Minn. - Firehouse Subs announces the grand opening of its first location in Baxter, Minnesota at 15094 Dellwood Drive, Suite 102. The restaurant will open its doors to the public on Saturday, December 17, under the ownership of first-time Firehouse Subs Franchisees Bob and Larissa Sullivan.

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 Firehouse Subs restaurant. The two have spent most of their careers in the restaurant industry, with a combined 45 years of experience operating restaurants for other franchise brands while being involved in the communities surrounding their restaurants. The Sullivans are looking forward to making a positive impact through this restaurant and making contributions to Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

“We were on vacation in Florida when we discovered Firehouse Subs. We’re big foodies, so when Bob told me I needed to try the food at Firehouse Subs, I knew it had to be excellent,” Larissa Sullivan said. “The first sub I tried was like nothing else I’ve had, and I knew from that first bite that this was the perfect fit for us.”

“On top of the hearty and flavorful food, we were ecstatic to learn how the brand gives back to local communities and first responders through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation,” Bob Sullivan said. “Being involved and making a positive impact on the community we live and work in is a major priority for us, and we’re excited to do that in Baxter.”

The Sullivans are dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to heartfelt service and giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted more than $539,000 in Minnesota. 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 Baxter Firehouse Subs restaurant is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. The restaurant features a drive-thru window that is open until 10 p.m. It will offer third-party delivery and in-house catering services to accommodate occasions of all sizes, from office meetings to family gatherings.

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 $46 million to hometown heroes in 49 states, Puerto Rico and Canada. Each restaurant recycles five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $3 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.
