Lee County Couple Opens Newest Firehouse Subs® in Cape Coral Commons

Firehouse Subs® is pleased to announce the grand opening of its newest Cape Coral restaurant. Located at 1519 NE Pine Island Rd. and part of the new Cape Coral Commons development, the restaurant is owned by Lee County residents Dan and Lisa Redolphy. 

The Redolphys own four Firehouse Subs restaurants in Southwest Florida – two in Fort Myers and now two in Cape Coral. The husband-and-wife duo met 20 years ago while working together at a popular country club in Naples. Dan was an aspiring professional golfer while Lisa was working in the food and beverage department.  

We are excited to expand our footprint and bring the popular flavors of Firehouse Subs to a new part of town as a part of the highly anticipated Cape Coral Commons shopping center,” said Dan Redolphy. “My wife Lisa and I look forward to welcoming in new and loyal guests.” 

The Cape Coral Commons Firehouse Subs restaurant opens at 10:30 a.m. every day and closes at 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The restaurant offers a variety of hot specialty subs, piled high with premium meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh daily in-restaurant and steamed together to bring out the ingredients’ natural flavors. 

Redolphy is dedicated to sharing the brand’s commitment to giving back through Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation®, which has granted more than $517,000 to first responders and public safety organizations in greater Ft. Myers-Naples, including Cape Coral Police Department, Cape Coral Fire Department and Lee County Sheriff's Office. A portion of every purchase at any Firehouse Subs in the U.S. benefits the Foundation, which provides lifesaving equipment and resources to first responders and public safety organizations across the country. 

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. This restaurant boasts a custom, hand-painted mural by Chief Mural Artist Joe Puskas, featuring a Cape Coral Fire Department truck, as well as a police cruiser. It also features the Redolphys two dogs, Moose and Sammy, as well as their 10-year-old daughter Grace.  

Founded in 2005, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has granted more than $75 million worth of lifesaving equipment to hometown heroes in 50 states, Puerto Rico and Canada. Each restaurant recycles five-gallon pickle buckets, available to guests for a $3 donation to the Foundation. Donation canisters on register counters collect spare change, while the Round Up Program allows guests to “round up” their bill to the nearest dollar. All funds raised benefit the Foundation.
