10.23.2015 | JACKSONVILLE, FLA. FIREHOUSE SUBS® INTRODUCES ANDROID PAY™ NATIONWIDE IN ITS RESTAURANTS
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Firehouse Subs, the fast casual restaurant chain with more than 920 locations nationwide, announces that its restaurants will start accepting Android Pay, a convenient mobile payment service that enables Android users to seamlessly tap and pay with their phones. To use Android Pay, guests simply unlock their phone and hold it near the contactless terminal to complete payment.
Security is at the center of Android Pay so actual credit card or debit card numbers aren’t sent with payment information. Instead, Android Pay uses a virtual account number that provides an extra layer of security. As soon as a purchase is made, users receive payment confirmation that shows where a given transaction happened, so it’s easy to catch any suspicious activity.
“Firehouse Subs is continuously looking for ways to innovate and improve our business, and we’re thrilled to adopt Android Pay in all of our locations,” says Vince Burchianti, Chief Financial Officer, Firehouse of America, LLC. “With mobile payment systems growing in popularity, Android Pay helps position Firehouse Subs as a leader in the fast casual industry, providing our guests a more convenient and secure checkout experience.”
Android Pay can be downloaded on any Android phone running KitKat or higher straight from the Google Play Store. To learn more about Android Pay, visit https://www.android.com/pay.
