Firehouse Subs® this week announced the grand opening of its first location in Lee’s Summit. The restaurant, located at 111 S. MO-291, opened its doors to the public on Tuesday, Jun. 1, 2021 under the ownership of Firehouse Subs Franchisee Jeremy Wallace.
This is the third restaurant for Wallace and the 13th Firehouse Subs location across the greater Kansas City area. Wallace opened his first Firehouse Subs restaurant in Blue Springs, Missouri, in 2013 before acquiring his second restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri in 2018. He has big dreams of continuing to open more Firehouse Subs restaurants in the coming years.
“I’ve been looking into opening a Firehouse Subs in Lee’s Summit for the last nine years and I am so excited it’s finally happening. We can’t wait to bring our hearty and lifesaving subs to this community and look forward to meeting our guests and putting a smile on their face,” said Wallace. “Public safety and heartfelt service is at the core of the Firehouse Subs brand. Over the years, we’ve been able to give back in a big way thanks to our guests and Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. We’re looking forward to that support continuing to grow with our new Lee’s Summit location.”
Wallace is dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted nearly $1.3 million in Missouri. A portion of every sale at any Firehouse Subs in the U.S. benefits the Foundation, allowing the Foundation to achieve its mission of providing lifesaving equipment, funding and education to first responders and public safety organizations across the country.
The Lee’s Summit Firehouse Subs restaurant is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It will offer steamed-to-perfection subs to go via online ordering through the Firehouse Subs app or website, call-in phone orders, third-party delivery or Rapid Rescue To Go® takeout service at the counter inside. Additionally, in-house catering services are also offered to guests to accommodate occasions of all sizes, from office meetings to family gatherings. Following local guidelines, the dining room will be open at limited capacity, and outdoor dining will be available.
The restaurant will feature an outdoor dining patio that seats a total of 10 guests and a unique walk-up window where guests can easily pick up Rapid Rescue To Go® orders made online at FirehouseSubs.com or through the Firehouse Subs app.
Firehouse Subs serves a variety of hot specialty subs, piled high with premium meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh daily in-restaurant and steamed together to bring out the ingredients’ natural flavors, served “Fully Involved®” with fresh produce and condiments. In addition to its signature subs, the restaurant offers a variety of catering options from sandwich and dessert platters to salads and snacks to fuel any occasion.
Founded by former firefighting brothers, the restaurant décor reflects the founding family’s decades of fire and police service with gear and photos donated by local fire departments. It boasts a custom, hand-painted mural by Chief Mural Artist Joe Puskas, featuring both the Kansas City Royals and Kansas City Chiefs stadiums with tailgating fans and a Lee’s Summit Fire Department firetruck. Since the opening of the first Firehouse Subs in 1994, Puskas and his team have painted more than 1,190 murals from his studio at Firehouse Subs Headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla.
In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, lifesaving equipment and educational opportunities to first responders and public safety organizations. The 501(c)(3) Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $57 million to hometown heroes in 49 states, Puerto Rico and Canada. Each restaurant recycles five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $3 donation to the Foundation. Donation canisters on register counters explain the nonprofit’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.
