Christiansons Open Firehouse Subs
Firehouse Subs has opened in Billings at 2950 King Avenue West, Ste.B, under the ownership of Firehouse Subs Franchisees Rick and Matt Christianson. Opening of the store marks the third in the state of Montana.
Rick and his son, Matt, are excited to bring a new restaurant concept to Billings, after discovering Firehouse Subs while Rick was traveling in Ohio. The combination of friendly people, unique restaurant décor, hot subs and Matt’s extensive restaurant background created a recipe for success.
“I’ve been working in restaurants since I was 15, so working with my dad to bring Firehouse Subs to our family and neighbors is the culmination of our hard work and love for Billings,” said Matt. “We’re very passionate about the hot and flavorful subs, and Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, so I can’t wait for our guests to experience this with us. We’ll have a lot of hearty appetites to feed.”
The Christiansons are dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, which has granted more than $314,000 in Montana. 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 Billings Firehouse Subs offers steamed-to-perfection subs. 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. 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 the Billings skyline. 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.
