Firehouse Subs closed after four years in Schererville

Firehouse Subs has closed in Highland.

Firehouse Subs has closed in Schererville's Shops on Main after just four years.

The firefighter-themed eatery at 69 U.S. 41 No. 315 has vacated a strip mall that includes Noodles and Co. and Meatheads in front of the upscale open-air lifestyle center at the border off Schererville and Highland. It was one of the original tenants of the recently built shopping center at Indianapolis Boulevard and Main Street that includes Whole Foods, Nordstrom Rack, Tomato Bar and Ross Dress for Less. 

The phone number is disconnected, and the corporate office did not immediate return messages.

The Jacksonville, Florida-based sandwich chain still has other Region locations in Munster, Merrillville, Portage and Valparaiso. Firehouse Subs serves hot and cold sub sandwiches and donates a portion of its proceeds to first responders. It has a hot sauce bar that include extreme hot sauces, such as those made with Ghost Peppers and Carolina Reaper Peppers.

It was part of a wave of new sandwich chains that have opened in Northwest Indiana in recent years, including Potbelly Sandwich Works, Which Wich and Jersey Mike's.
