Local Restaurateur Brings the Heat with Opening of First Firehouse Subs® in Reno, Nevada

Restaurant to Offer Easy Takeout Options

May 15, 2020 // Franchising.com // Reno, Nev. - Firehouse Subs® announces the grand opening of its first location in Reno, Nevada at 199 Damonte Ranch Parkway in Unit K. The restaurant will open its doors to the public on Friday, May 15 under the ownership of Firehouse Subs Franchisees Damon Kreizenbeck and Patrick Lindsay.

The restaurant will offer steamed-to-perfection subs to go via online ordering through the Firehouse Subs app or website, call-in phone orders and takeout service at the counter inside. Third party delivery through DoorDash and GrubHub will be available beginning Monday, May 18. Following state and local regulations, the dining room will be open at 50% capacity as well.

This is the third Firehouse Subs restaurant in the Reno area, and the third for Kreizenbeck, who opened his first restaurant in Carson City in 2015 followed by a Sparks location in 2018 with father-in-law and business partner Lindsay.

“This neighborhood in Southern Reno is a community I’ve wanted to be a part of for years, and now more than ever, I’m honored to have the opportunity to feed and serve my new friends and neighbors,” Kreizenbeck said. “We look forward to providing hearty and flavorful subs through our takeout services, and can’t wait to be able to welcome guests with open arms into our dining room and patio.”

Kreizenbeck is dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted more than $250,000 in the greater Reno area since the Carson City’s opening. Since March 18, Firehouse Subs restaurants, the Foundation and community partners have donated more than 73,000 meals to local first responders, healthcare workers and people in need. A portion of every purchase at any Firehouse Subs in the U.S. benefits the Foundation, helping achieve its mission of providing lifesaving equipment, funding and education to first responders and public safety organizations across the country.

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

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.

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 Reno restaurant boasts a custom, hand-painted mural by Chief Mural Artist Joe Puskas, which features the Sierra Nevada mountains, Washoe Lake and hometown heroes from the Reno Fire Department. 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 $50 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.
