Niagara Gazette — Two sisters opened a Firehouse Subs franchise in the Town of Niagara in December because they appreciated that the franchise was designed to help local firemen and the communities they serve.
But, they chose their location at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls because “we like the area and we love to shop here,” laughed Brittney Notz, 26, who owns Firehouse Subs with her sister, Lindsey Johnson and their family.
The sisters, from Amherst, are planning a grand opening of their store, located at 1900 Military Road next to Applebee’s Restaurant, from 10:30 to 9 p.m. May 3, and are planning to invite local firemen to the event to meet with customers.
The franchise also appealed to the women because the corporation —located in Jacksonville, Fla., offers grants to fire houses where the franchises are located. The company also has a public safety foundation dedicated to improving the life-saving capabilities of first responders and other public safety organizations in the communities served by Firehouse Subs.
There are two other Firehouse Subs in the region, including one in Williamsville and Blasdell. For more information visit www.firehousesubs.com or phone 298-5796.
