Firehouse Subs® Opens First Location in Catoosa, Debuts New Restaurant Design in Oklahoma
U.S. Army medics and business partners open new restaurant featuring contemporary Community Design
December 21, 2021 // Franchising.com // CATOOSA, Okla. - Firehouse Subs® is pleased to announce the grand opening of its first Community Design restaurant in Oklahoma. Located in Catoosa at 19361 Robson Road Ste. B., the new restaurant - owned by first-time Franchisees John “J.P.” Bell and Dakota Pruitt - is also the brand’s first location in Rogers County.
Both proud citizens of the Cherokee Nation, the business partners met while serving in the U.S. Army as medics. Bell served his country for six years while Pruitt has served for 14 years and is still active in the military. Prior to opening the restaurant, Bell gained 12 years of experience in the food and beverage industry working at the corporate office and as a regional manager for another restaurant brand. Pruitt has worked in the healthcare industry for more than a decade and currently serves as an Oklahoma territory sales manager with a focus on genetics.
“We’re passionate about opening our first restaurant and debuting the brand’s Community Design concept in the great state of Oklahoma,” said Bell. “Our values align with everything Firehouse Subs stands for and we’re excited to share hot and hearty sandwiches with the Catoosa community.”
“Our time serving in the U.S. Army instilled in us a great deal of respect for first responders, and it’s just as important for us to give back to them as it is to serve delicious food,” Pruitt noted. “We look forward to supporting local heroes through a portion of every purchase benefiting Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.”
The new Community Design restaurant concept features enhancements made to provide a better dining experience for guests, in addition to a new back-of-the-house layout with a more efficient flow for crew members. The updated design of this new location has a repositioned ordering area and a designated space for Rapid Rescue To Go® orders. The space also demonstrates the brand’s commitment to community, first responders, heartfelt service and quality food that satisfies.
The Catoosa Hills Firehouse Subs restaurant opens at 10:30 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m. seven days a week.
Bell and Pruitt are dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation®, which has granted more than $161,000 in the greater Tulsa 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.
