March 28, 2012 // Franchising.com // Richardson, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its 2nd location in Richardson on March 21. Franchise owners Troy Wuertz, Dan Martin and Ramsey Koschak held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., March 21 to Sun., March 25 to support Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS). They will continue their fundraising efforts from Thurs., March 29 to Sun., April 1 in support of the J. J. Pearce High School Booster Club.
The new restaurant, located at 1920 N. Coit Road #221, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community and local college campuses, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) and J. J. Pearce High School Booster Club.
Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s continued its steady growth in 2011 opening 69 new restaurants throughout the country, a 15 percent increase overall. The popular sub shop wins best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
Troy Wuertz, Dan Martin and Ramsey Koschak exemplify Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects 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. In 2011, locations throughout the country raised more than $2 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 200,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“With our grand opening we realized the important opportunity we had to partner with the community of Richardson so we decided to support the children of our local community through two great organizations,” said Wertz.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters is an exceptional organization that helps children realize and pursue their full potential in life,” said Martin. “I have a personal interest in the organization as I am a Big Brother. To reach even more youth, we included J. J. Pearce High School Booster Club. Its motto of ‘academic excellence is not a goal...it is the standard,’ really resonated with us.”
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature blend of olive oil, red wine vinegar and spices. The company uses only private labeled meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh for each sub sandwich and piled high on in-store baked bread. Everything is quickly made to order for each customer, just the way the first subs were made at the original Jersey Mike's more than fifty years ago. The Jersey Mike’s experience always includes its trademark neighborly banter served up by a high-energy Jersey Mike’s team.
This is the team’s first location. They look forward to further expanding their Jersey Mike’s empire across Northeast Texas. “Born and raised in Richardson, as well as being a J. J. Pearce High School graduate, I am thrilled to return to my roots and open our location in such a wonderful neighborhood,” said Koschak.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (972) 792-7100.
