Franchisee Duo Bring First Firehouse Subs® to Dayton, TN

December 20, 2021 // // DAYTON, Tenn. - Firehouse Subs® is pleased to announce the grand opening of its first location in Dayton, TN, locally owned and operated by Franchisees Lee Smith and Lonnie Patton.

Smith started working as a meat slicer nearly 10 years ago at the Firehouse Subs location in Athens, TN and worked his way up to a management position, ultimately purchasing the restaurant with business partner Lonnie Patton in 2017. Prior to joining Firehouse Subs, Patton worked in the banking industry for 23 years and now operates four restaurants alongside Smith.

“We are so proud to bring a Firehouse Subs restaurant to the city of Dayton, especially knowing the reciprocated excitement of the community,” Smith noted. “I have been with the brand for almost 10 years and giving back to the community and first responders is in our DNA. I can’t wait to see how Dayton comes together to continue supporting those on the front line locally through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.”

“Opening another Firehouse Subs restaurant is exciting and rewarding in so many ways, from our food to community support and beyond,” said Patton. “Serving our hot and hearty subs to new and loyal guests while giving back to our community is what brings us joy, and we are thrilled to be opening our fourth location in the greater Chattanooga area.”

The Firehouse Subs restaurant at Dayco Crossing opens at 10:30 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m. seven days a week. The restaurant offers subs to go.

Smith and Patton are dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation®, which has granted more than $575,000 in the greater Chattanooga area. A portion of every purchase at any Firehouse Subs in the U.S. benefits the Foundation to help achieve its mission of providing lifesaving equipment and resources to first responders and public safety organizations across the country.

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.
