NH gets its first Firehouse Subs shop
Bruce Stone and his daughter, Rachel, of Maynard, Mass., say they are thrilled about the new business venture.
Firehouse Subs is a fast-casual restaurant chain originally founded by brothers and former firefighters Chris and Robin Sorensen. Headquartered in Florida, the restaurant currently has more than 720 sub shops throughout the nation.
After having worked for the Acton, Mass., fire department for many years, the restaurant business is quite the change, Bruce Stone said.
At the new Nashua location, a hand-painted mural pays tribute to his grandfather, Bert Stone, who served 44 years before retiring as captain of the Lynn Fire Department in Massachusetts. The mural, painted by artist Joe Puskas and his team, depicts Bruce's grandfather commanding a horse-drawn steam engine heading to extinguish a blaze.
In addition to serving hearty food, Firehouse Subs is known for its commitment to public safety organizations, and has donated millions of dollars to emergency efforts since its creation of the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation in 2005.
The father and daughter duo is optimistic they will have the opportunity to open a second sub shop near Main Street in the area of Southern New Hampshire Medical Center.
