April 09, 2015 // Franchising.com // Bristol, TN - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Bristol on March 25. Franchise owners David and Jeanie Wampler held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 25 to Sunday, March 29 to support Cedar View Christian School.
The new restaurant, located at 420 Pinnacle Parkway, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Cedar View Christian School.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to open my third location in the Bristol community,” said David Wampler. “The Cedar View Christian School has been serving the educational needs of students in the Tri-Cities area for more than 40 years. This school has meant a lot to us because all four of our daughters and one granddaughter received a high quality, K-12 education there and currently ten of our grandchildren are attending Cedar View. We have a deep felt appreciation to this school and are thankful for its service to families in our area.”
David and Jeanie are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who share the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. All March long, franchisees throughout the nation are celebrating the 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving. Last year, $2.1 million was raised for more than 100 different charities nationwide.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2014 Top 100 and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who crave their subs made Mike’s Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice” – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection. Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
This is the fourth Jersey Mike’s location for David and Jeanie Wampler. In July, 2001 they opened their first location in Bristol, Va., and went on to open two more locations in Bristol and Kingsport, Tenn., in 2006 and 2011.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
