Finally, a new tenant has been nailed down for one of the vacant spaces at Lyndale Station.

Firehouse Subs plans to open a restaurant at 6535 Lyndale Ave. S. at Lyndale Station by the end of October, Carly Kirkland, a spokesperson for the company, told Richfield Patch in an e-mail.

The Richfield location will be a franchise location, and one of more than 600 total locations in 35 states and Puerto Rico. The menu features both hot and cold sandwiches, and salads. Patrons will be able to place their orders online and pick them up at the restaurant.

According to the company's website, the chain was started 18 years ago by Chris and Robin Sorensen.

There are currently two other Firehouse Subs locations in Minnesota in St. Cloud and Maplewood. Another will open soon in Plymouth. For more information on the sub chain, go to firehousesubs.com.

Patch also reached out to the Lyndale Station property manager, Todd Kaufman, for comment, however, a response has not been received by the time of this article.

Another sandwich shop? Really? How about a little dinner spot? Something besides a chain, a destination? I leave Richfield whenever I want to go out for dinner, except when I want Mexican because El Tejaban is amazing! We should be trying to bring people in from surrounding areas.

Any suggestions for other restaurants? There is still room for more.

I personally am excited for this. It's something new to the area so it WILL draw people, much like Popeyes is doing. This building has been vacant for more than a year. If anyone else wanted to be there they would have already. I would mych rather have a vacant storefront filled up!

I second the vote for independent restaurants and businesses. What about putting in a bakery like The Baker's Wife or Sunstreet Bakery? Independent restaurants like Wise Acre, Longfellow Grill or Al Vento? How about a microbrew pub? Or maybe an ice cream shop like Pumphouse Creamery?
