A grand opening is set Sunday for the new Firehouse Subs fast casual restaurant in Suite 1 at 3120 U.S. Highway 50 East.
The chain outlet features meats and cheeses steamed on a sub roll with produce and condiments, as well as other fare. This outlet is owned by Damon and Karin Kreizenbeck and Patrick and Kay Lindsay. Like other restaurants in the chain, this one includes decor involving firefighter memorabilia due to the founders being firefighting brothers, but also has a local flavor.
All outlets include custom, hand-painted murals paying tribute to the communities in which they operate. In Carson City at this first Firehouse Subs locations opened by the Kreizenbecks and Lindsays, the mural depicts the annual Nevada Day Parade. It was Joe Puskas and his team, who have painted each mural, and they have done more than 900 since the first of the chain restaurants opened in 1994.
Firehouse fare includes the Hook & Ladder Sub with smoked turkey breast and Virginia honey and Monterey Jack cheese. Also available is the Smokehouse Beef & Cheddar Brisket.
Also on hand for customers to choose on subs is Captain Sorenson’s Datil Pepper hot sauce, which was named for the founders’ father, a retired fire captain.
A reduced calorie menu provides options with 500 calories or fewer, which includes six subs and four salads. Also available are various drink options, including those with low calories. In 2016, according to the chain’s website, menu options are expected to include cold subs as well as the current steamed sub sandwich offerings.
The Carson City restaurant is open from Sunday-Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 9 p.m.
