One of the things I learned that night that impressed me the most, above all the yummy sandwiches, was the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, an amazing way Firehouse Subs give back to local communities. This foundation provides first responders and public safety organizations with life-saving equipment, training, tools, and disaster relief (providing food). The day Robin was in Austin, they were making a donation of 10 wildfire fire suits to the Cedar Park Fire Department. Over the last 5 years, the foundation has made over 495 donations equaling over $5.7 million to police, fire departments, and schools. Amazing.
About 60% of all donations are raised by the individual franchises too. Donation Canisters are at each register for your loose change. You can also round up your cash or credit purchase to the next dollar. And you can purchase an empty, five-gallon pickle bucket for only $2 – what a great way to recycle the buckets and donate to a good cause!
Learning more about Firehouse Subs that day endeared me to them. I think differently, knowing the quality of the sandwich I am eating (and feeding my family). I respect the stores so much more now, seeing how much they give back to our local public safety communities. I loved hearing the Sorenson Brothers’ story and am proud of how successful they have become.
But it wasn’t just about letting me taste all their yummy food…..Firehouse Subs wanted me to “share the love” to you as well, providing me with gift cards to give out to some readers!!
