October 31, 2016 // Franchising.com // East Rutherford, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in East Rutherford on October 26. Franchise owners Matt Catania and John Helm held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 26 to Sunday, October 30 to support Henry P. Becton Regional High School.
The new restaurant, located at 50 Route 17 North, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Henry P. Becton Regional High School.
“John and I, avid Jets and Giants fans respectively, are extremely excited to open up a store in their home team's backyard,” said Catania.
“We have been eyeing East Rutherford for quite some time now and know what a great community it is,” Helm added. “We are both extremely excited to be opening this store in such an incredible community.”
Catania and Helm 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 $18 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $4 million for 180 charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In 2015, for the second year in a row, the company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (201) 935-2166.
