Firehouse Subs will open its second Washington County location, on the former Sharp’s Furniture property along Route 19 in South Strabane Township. Angela Swartz, the franchisee, said a June 12 launch is planned and about 18 will be employed there.

The county’s initial Firehouse Subs is in the Gallery Shops off Route 19 in Peters Township.

Swartz’s restaurant will be in one of two buildings at the back of the property. Firehouse will be in the one directly behind the structure housing Aspen Dental and Mattress Firm, which are up and operating.

She said Firehouse, with about 2,000 square feet of space, will share its building with Quest Diagnostics and a T-Mobile store, which will launch later.

Summer Ewing, the Belleair Beach, Fla.-based owner of the unnamed shopping complex, confirmed via email that those businesses have signed leases along with Batteries Plus and Pizza Fire. The latter two will occupy the remaining building.

Swartz said this will be one of three Firehouse shops she will open, but doesn’t yet know where the others will be.
