Firehouse Subs announced that it would roll out new technology at their 920 locations including Apple Products ay back in 2015. Firehouse Subs CEO Don Fox stated, “By moving in this direction, Firehouse Subs is able to provide our guests an easy, secure, and private way to make mobile payments.”

In case you’re in a hurry, don’t worry they even take it at the drive-through.
