These two eateries have opened off Spout Springs Road in Flowery Branch

Firehouse Subs opened Saturday, Aug. 28, at 5900 Spout Springs Road next to Planet Smoothie and near a Publix-anchored shopping center.

The 1,700-square-foot restaurant will have seating for about 25 customers and was expected to employ 15 workers, Firehouse spokeswoman Claire Marshall has said.

The store opening comes nearly two years after the closing of a Firehouse location across the street next to Stonebridge Village shopping center.

“We are trying diligently to find another location nearby and hope to reopen within a year in that new location,” the restaurant sign on the closed business stated at the time.
