Firehouse Subs® Brings Third Restaurant to Tri-Cities Area with Pasco Location

January 31, 2020 // Franchising.com // PASCO, Wash. - Firehouse Subs® announces the grand opening of its first location in Pasco, Washington at 4845 Broadmoor Blvd. The restaurant will open its doors to the public on Saturday, February 1 under the ownership of Firehouse Subs Franchisee Group Sun Pacific Energy.

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 on a toasted sub roll. 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 third Firehouse Subs restaurant for Sun Pacific Energy, a family-owned and operated business, which opened its first Firehouse Subs restaurant in Burbank in December 2017, followed by Kennewick in May 2019. The restaurant will feature a pick-up window for online orders and third-party deliveries, in addition to a 16-seat patio with seating for 40 inside the restaurant.

Shawn Sanderson, district manager for Firehouse Subs and Sub Pacific Energy, is dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted more than $576,000 in Washington. 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.

“Serving our community through Firehouse Subs and the Foundation is a true honor, and we’re all very excited to expand that service to more guests in Pasco,” Sanderson said. “There’s so many great nearby communities in the area, and I’m really looking forward to becoming a part of the neighborhood and of course serving our flavorful subs, but also giving back to our local first responders.”

The Pasco Firehouse Subs restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 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 Chris Sorensen and Robin Sorensen, the restaurant décor reflects the founding family’s decades of fire and police service with gear and photos donated by local fire departments. The Pasco restaurant boasts a custom, hand-painted mural by Chief Mural Artist Joe Puskas, which features the iconic Ed Hendler Cable Bridge over the Columbia River. The mural pays homage to local first responders with a Pasco Fire and Rescue boat painted on the river, with a Pasco Fire Department truck nearby. Since the opening of the first Firehouse Subs in 1994, Puskas and his team have painted more than 1,180 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 $48 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.
