    I hate to see this go. As someone who lives within walking distance to this location, it was great to be able to walk down and just grab a sandwich. Despite some opinions, everything in the area does not need to be a new, nonchain establishment.

    This is so disappointing. We loved their sandwiches and they had such great employees working there. I know it was a chain but it didn’t feel like one b/c of their employees. Really bummed.

    I frequently traveled out of my way to grab a sandwich here. Really sad to see it go. I’m sure the new parking situation didn’t help.

    Gee, anojther “way-overpriced, always left hungry” sandwich shop closed? In Atlanta? When will people realize that a fair and square deal is what will get people to come back again and again? Last time I was in a Firehouse (in Conyers, BTW), I had a small combo and dropped over $8.00. I can see spending more in a higher rent location, but most Firehouse locations are in strip malls – many of them the one’s I used to be in.

    P.S. I know, the “spung monkeys” was a bad marketing ploy – I fired that agency soon after….

      I find this almost laughable Mr. Quiznos… I’ve been opening Firehouse locations for eleven years and every time I do… a Quiznos closes… I was in OKC a few weeks ago and couldn’t find but a couple of your stores left open… LOL

    This just shows the midtown crowd is too sophisticated for a chain with hundreds of successful spots. Right?? Or perhaps it shows that about the only thing that can work in midtown Atlanta is a church’s chicken… 500k condos and homes owners must love cheap chicken, wait till other cities find out!
