Firehouse Subs is Looking for More Than a Few Good People
This week, Firehouse Subs announced it is hosting its first national recruitment event, which will run from April 6 through April 8 from 2 to 5 p.m. each day. The company wants to fill more than 12,000 permanent full-time and part-time positions in more than 1,130 locations in the United States, including crew members and management opportunities.
“Our brand is lucky to be in a position where we can expand our restaurant teams and create opportunities within our local communities during these challenging times,” CEO Don Fox said. “Our restaurant owners are passionate about heartfelt service and hearty, flavorful food, and we’re excited to welcome new team members who share those values.”
According to Firehouse Subs, many of its franchisees began their restaurant careers as crew members or general managers who advanced through the ranks and became entrepreneurs. This includes Will Stilley, a franchisee in Perry, Ga., who began working at Firehouse Subs as a crew member as he attended high school.
“After serving in the U.S. Army for more than 10 years, I had the opportunity to return to the brand as a restaurant owner,” he recalled. “It’s extremely fulfilling to be part of a brand that is so invested in its team members and making a positive impact across the country.”
For example, a portion of every purchase at all U.S. Firehouse Subs locations benefits Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted more than $57 million to first responders and public safety organizations in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. “Donations help the foundation achieve its mission providing lifesaving equipment and resources to first responders and public safety organizations across the country,” it says.
