In honor of Veterans Day on November 11, we are recognizing and honoring some of our Firehouse Subs franchisees who selflessly served their nation in the United States military. Today we are honored to shine a light on yet another inspiring restaurant leader – Logan Hubbard from Phoenix, AZ.

First responders and military veterans have a shared commitment to serve and protect their fellow citizens, and U.S. Army Reserves 2nd Lt. Logan Hubbard knew joining the Firehouse Subs Family would allow him to continue to show his support to the community that has taught him so much. As an officer of the U.S. Army Reserves, Logan has taken his passion and skills learned in the military and used them to shape how he runs his Firehouse Subs restaurants. A new and first-time Firehouse Sub franchisee, Logan now owns three Firehouse Subs restaurants in Phoenix, AZ. 

Learn more about Logan and what led him to be the U.S. Army Reserves Officer and multi-unit franchisee he is today.

In what branch of the U.S. military did you serve and for how long?

I served in the U.S Army Reserves for two years.

What was your role in the military?

I served as U.S. Army Reserves 2nd Lieutenant as an HR Officer, managing personnel.

What made you become a Firehouse Subs franchisee?

The Firehouse Subs culture was a big draw for me. There is a lot of overlap between first responders and veterans, especially in the reserve component. My unit has numerous firefighters, police officers and EMTs. Being a franchisee gave me an opportunity to build something for my family, while still working closely with those demographics. 

What skills did you develop during your military service that prepared you to lead a franchise? 

My military services allow me to develop both hard and soft skills. As an officer, I learned leadership and how to optimize personnel, including finding the right person for the right job. My time as enlisted was short, but it taught me to not be afraid to get your hands dirty by jumping into a problem and fixing it. 

What does Veterans Day mean to you?

Veterans Day is a day to honor the 1% of the U.S. population that currently wear the uniform and the 7% of the population that have previously worn the uniform.
