New Jersey Team Takes Home Gold In Jersey Mike’s National Sub-Making Competition

April 22, 2016 // // MANASQUAN, N.J. – A three-person team from Brick, N.J. took home the Gold and $30,000 at Jersey Mike’s Subs National G13 Competition last week in Orlando, Fla. Kevin Brennan, Tom Sisbarro and Joe DeAngelo, all Brick residents, sliced, sprinkled and wrapped their way to sub-making victory in under a minute against four other finalist teams from throughout the country. The trio works at the Jersey Mike’s on Mantoloking Road in Brick, NJ, owned by Matt Catania and John Helm. 

“We wanted to win it for the Jersey Shore, after all that's where Jersey Mike's started,” said Brennan. “We're thankful that Jersey Mike's is able to create a fun and competitive atmosphere that allows us to push one another to be the best we can.”

Jersey Mike’s created the G13 Competition to reinforce the importance of safety, brand quality and speed of service with the company’s team members.  G refers to Giant, the size of the sub competitors make, and 13 refers to the company’s most popular sub, #13 The Original Italian. 

Each sub making team was judged on building the perfect sub to the correct weight as fast as possible and following proper procedures. Competitors made a Giant #13 (The Original Italian with provolone, ham, prosciuttini, cappacuolo, salami and pepperoni). In addition to fresh slicing all the meats and cheese, contestants dressed a sub Mike’s Way® with lettuce, tomatoes and onions and showed off their “sprinkling,” skills, adding “The Juice” (olive oil/red wine vinegar) before cutting, wrapping and bagging each sub. 

The teams competed April 10 at Jersey Mike’s National Conference in Orlando. More than 1,000 franchise owners, managers and others gathered to celebrate the company's 60th anniversary, while gaining inspiration and education.
