By Mike Hazlip—
The redevelopment of the Sunrise Village shopping plaza at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Madison Avenue continues, with the latest future tenant listed as Firehouse Subs.

A marketing brochure released by Merlone Geier shows Firehouse Subs and Starbucks occupying the majority of a new standalone building with three suites, located where Coco’s restaurant once stood. The middle suite appears to have still not yet been taken.

Firehouse Subs media relations specialist Carey Jester told the Sacramento Business Journal earlier this month that the new location will open next year, but did not give a specific date. The franchise owner is Jose Quintero, according to The Journal, and the Citrus Heights location will be the first Firehouse Subs in the city.

The Florida-based restaurant chain has over 1,200 locations, with each typically featuring firefighter-themed interiors. Menu options include various hot and cold sub sandwiches, promising “a winning combination that satisfies ravenous appetites and the value-conscious alike.” The restaurant’s Roseville location has earned a 4-out-of-5 stars average rating from reviewers on Yelp.

Once fully renovated, the 15-acre Sunrise Village shopping plaza will also include a 36,152-square-foot City Sports Club and a 38,000-square-foot “grocer,” although the name of the grocer is not listed on marketing brochures. Jo-Ann Fabrics will also reopen with an expanded 27,150-square-foot location in the center.
