Ask/Answered: Carlisle's Firehouse Subs reopens with new ownership

What is the status of Firehouse Subs in Carlisle?

Firehouse Subs opened in May 2017 at 10 Noble Blvd., in the Carlisle Commons shopping plaza. However, it appeared to be short-lived when it closed its doors on June 14, 2019.

At the time, a spokesperson for the firefighter-themed sub chain expressed optimism that a new franchise owner could be found to reignite the Carlisle location.

Now, the store has reopened under new ownership.

Darrin and Dennis Atlas bring experience to the business: This is their ninth Firehouse Subs location since opening their first store in 2014, according to a news release. This will be the first Pennsylvania location for the Atlases, who have focused their restaurants primarily in Maryland.

“This is a brand we are passionate about on a daily basis,” Darrin Atlas said in the news release. “From our hearty, flavorful food to our heartfelt customer service, we’re proud to serve our communities and look forward to welcoming the Carlisle community back into the Firehouse Subs family.”

The Carlisle store had reopened as of Monday, and is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

Firehouse Subs serves specialty subs in restaurants with firefighter décor. The Carlisle location features a hand-painted mural of members of the Carlisle Fire Department in one of their firetrucks, according to the news release.

The chain also partners with the nonprofit Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which provides funding and equipment to first responder organizations.
