The first Firehouse Subs restaurant in Bakersfield opens today, and local people are invited to stop by to try the sandwiches and speak with local franchisees Mike Kamrani and Navid Sapir.

The eatery, located at 3700 California Ave., is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

This is the second restaurant for Kamrani and Sapir; they plan to continue development in the Southern California market.

“We couldn’t ask for a better place to open than Bakersfield, or a more perfect brand to invest with and grow," said Kamrani, who has been in the restaurant business for 17 years.
