TUPELO – It’s finally happening: Firehouse Subs in Tupelo is opening Friday at 10:30 a.m.

Firehouse Subs trainers and employees work together today in anticipation of the store opening Friday.

Today, the restaurant is doing some intensive training, with employees taking practice orders – and filling them – to invited guests.

Franchise owner Chris Stephenson, who also owns the Oxford Firehouse, has been eagerly anticipating this opening. It’s been nearly two years since Biz Buzz, the Daily Journal’s business blog, first heard that Firehouse was coming, and now, it’s about to open.

Stephenson also has Tupelo ties – his wife is the former Koda Utley, a graduate of Tupelo High. She’s also a co-owner of the restaurant.
