Firehouse Subs heats up Andersonville Volunteer Fire Department with equipment


Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation is awarding much needed equipment to Andersonville Volunteer Fire Department.

Otherwise unavailable due to budget constraints, the department benefits with an Akron Mercury Monitor with Sabermaster nozzle worth more than $2,400. The donated equipment will allow the department to rapidly respond in emergency situations, provide fire suppression, and reduce firefighter injuries. 

Each restaurant recycles leftover, five-gallon pickle buckets and sells them to guests for $2. Donation canisters on register counters explain the non-profit’s mission and collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.

Firehouse Subs District Manager Brian Beason, Franchisee Paul Jarrett, General Manager Kristy Petty, Andersonville Volunteeer Fire Department Captain Ronnie Smiddy, AVFD Chief Jeff Bagwell and Firehouse Subs area rep. Tim Goss were present Wednesday Dec. 5 at Firehouse Subs, East Emory Road, Powell.

Firehouse Subs® is a fast casual restaurant chain with a passion for hearty and flavorful food, heartfelt service and public safety. Founded by former firefighters and brothers Chris Sorensen and Robin Sorensen, Firehouse Subs is a brand built on decades of fire and police service, the highest quality meats and cheeses piled higher, steaming hot subs, and its commitment to saving lives through the creation of Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The founders are the real deal, the food is their creation, and the company is built upon a family of franchise operators that share their same passion for serving others. Firehouse Subs consistently ranks No. 1 among fast casual brands in the categories of food quality, taste and flavor, and friendly service; for the last two years Franchise Business Review has ranked it No. 1 in franchisee satisfaction, and in 2012, the brand earned first place honors in the sandwich category in the Nation’s Restaurant News Consumer Picks study.

In 2005, Firehouse Subs created the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders. Through the non-profit 501(c)(3), Firehouse Subs has given $5.2 million to hometown heroes in 33 states and Puerto Rico, including more than $301,500 in Tennessee.

Paul Jarrett also has a Callahan Road Firehouse Subs location.
