Firehouse Subs is coming to Pacific Commons in Fremont — the first in northern California for the 700-store chain.
The new fast-casual restaurant will celebrate its grand opening at noon on Friday, Dec. 13 at 43344 Boscell Rd. with a hot deal for customers. The first five customers will get one free combo meal per week for a whole year and the first 25 will get a free meal that day.
Founded nearly 20 years ago by two firefighting brothers in Florida, Firehouse Subs boasts hot and smoky specialty sandwiches piled high with premium meats, cheeses and produce such as their Hook & Ladder (smoked turkey breast, honey ham, Monterrey jack cheese), the New York Steamer (corned beef brisket, pastrami and provolone cheese) and the Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket (beef brisket smoked for 16 hours with melted cheddar and Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce). The chain also carries their own spicy-sweet Captain Sorensen’s Datil Pepper Hot Sauce, named in honor of the founders’ father.
The Fremont location has indoor and outdoor seating and features a firehouse-themed décor with memorabilia donated by the Fremont Fire Department, along with a hand-painted mural that pays tribute to the community.
With the founders’ history in public safety in mind, the company prides itself on giving back to first responders in their communities though their Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The program provides funding, equipment and educational opportunities for public safety agencies and has given more than $7.7 million to organizations across the country, according to the company.
According to a spokesman, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has started a relationship with the Fremont Fire Department and their Public Safety Fund.
