Three years after Firehouse Subs opened in Marana, a second opened Monday near the Tucson Mall.
The restaurant is operated by Kristi and Lee Transue, the daughter and son-in-law of the Marana owners Robert and Jo Anne Westerman, who opened Firehouse at 3844 W. River Road in the Marana Marketplace, in summer 2011.
Firehouse is a national chain born in Florida in 1994. It sells sandwiches that take their names from fire department lingo including “fully involved” Engineer and a turkey sandwich called the Hook & Ladder.
The new restaurant at 475 W. Wetmore Road is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
