Firehouse Subs coming to Plymouth
August 20, 2013 by Sarah
A new lunch option will be available to Plymouth residents come this fall. Bradley Wilson, a local entrepreneur, will open a Firehouse Subs with his father and sister Pam in Plymouth Town Center. The new eatery will be next door to Batteries Plus.
Wilson, no stranger to business, owned the Three Dog Bakery here in Plymouth two years ago. He says he is really excited about the opportunity to be part of the franchise. His store will be the first in Wayne County. There are currently only six locations in Michigan, with the first one in the state having been opened last February in Brighton.
Firehouse Subs was founded by Robin and Chris Sorensen, brothers as well as firefighters. Wilson was impressed by their food as well as the nonprofit the brothers organized to help public safety organizations and first responders.
“Everybody loves firefighters and police officers. And the work they do with the Public Safety Foundation is really, really nice.”
The Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation was formed back in 2005 and has raised almost $7 million for life-saving equipment, education, and funding. The monies have been dispersed through 38 states, and organizations in Michigan have received $44,000 so far.
Renovations inside the property are scheduled to begin later this week. Wilson and family will be busy hiring, training, and finding a printing company to undertake stationery printing for the new restaurant. The opening is planned for around the first of October.
