A Florida-based sub chain called Firehouse Subs has plans to open a whopping 69 locations in the Boston area, and a location has been set for the very first one. The Back Bay Patch reports that the company submitted a proposal to the Back Bay Neighborhood Association for a "take-out restaurant" at 545 Boylston St., and the company's website already lists a location at that address as "coming soon." Could 68 more really be in store, and what is it with Florida restaurant chains coming to Boston lately?
