Different Equipment Set-Ups: Firehouse Subs

We at One Fat Frog take a lot of time to observe the restaurant equipment arrangements that many top restaurants have so we can better help you find the equipment you need for your business. One such popular restaurant concept is the sub shop and each one of the most well known has a different set up they have for their restaurants. Firehouse Subs, originated in Jacksonville, Florida, features a variety of hot and cold subs as well as chips, pickles, and other sides. Compared to other sub shops like Subway and Jimmy John’s, Firehouse has its own set-up for equipment. Here are some similarities:

Like other sub shops, Firehouse Subs have prep tables for their cold toppings and ovens for baking their bread. Their subs are made fresh when ordered, like other sub shops, and they also have similar restaurant layouts with low and high tables, including high stools.

Where Firehouse Subs differs is the way they make hot subs. Jimmy John’s makes cold subs exclusively, and Subway toasts their subs with a Turbo Chef oven. At Firehouse Subs, they first toast their sub rolls with a conveyor toaster (also used to melt cheese), have a steam table to keep certain items hot like meatballs, and several small countertop steamers for steaming other meats. The same topping arrangements are available for their subs.

While Firehouse Subs has certainly created their own brand and style of making sandwiches, other sub shops or restaurants can create similar styles by getting similar types of equipment, several pieces of which we have our warehouse in Orlando, plus a whole lot more.
