May 08, 2012 // Franchising.com // San Antonio, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its third location in San Antonio on May 2. Franchise owners Derek and Michelle Murph, with operator Stan Vasicek held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., May 2 to Sun., May 6 to support the Ronald Regan High School Band.
The new restaurant, located at 20323 Huebner Road, circulated more than 20,000 coupons throughout the community, which offered a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Ronald Regan High School Band.
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.
The Murphs and Vasicek exemplify Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects franchise owners and operators 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.
“Our mission with Jersey Mike’s and in life is simple: we want to positively influence the lives of others,” said Vasicek. “Whether we are helping others by giving them a job opportunity in our shop, or helping our local community through school fundraisers, making a difference is a fundamental part of our success and the Jersey Mike’s culture. Being able to fundraise as business owners is very special because it gives us the ability to generate more funds for causes we believe in. We have already had the chance to meet with various individuals at Ronald Regan High School, and we are looking forward to our continuing relationship with them.”
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 third Jersey Mike’s location in San Antonio for the Murphs and Vasicek. In August 2011, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s located at 8603 State Highway 151, and in December 2011 they went on to open another located on 7970 Fredericksburg Road.
