May 23, 2012 // Franchising.com // Boca Raton, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, opened its fourth location in Boca Raton on May 16. Store operator Scott Coleman held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 16 to Sunday, May 20 to support Spanish River High School and Boca Raton High School.
The new restaurant, located at 1200 Yamato Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community and to the schools which allowed the coupon holder to receive a “Free Regular” sub with a minimum $1 donation towards their respective school. To add the element of competition, the school which received the most donations at the end of the five day period was given an additional $1,000 gift from Jersey Mike’s Boca Raton.
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.
Scott Coleman exemplifies Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects 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.
“Enjoying friendly competition during the fundraising effort is a great way to celebrate a Jersey Mike’s grand opening,” said Jersey Mike’s Area Director Greg McMenaman. “All funds raised during our five day event will benefit the athletic departments at Spanish River and Boca Raton High Schools. Since many Florida schools are experiencing budget cuts for athletic programs, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to help out in our community. At Jersey Mike’s, we are all about making a positive impact on the people and communities around us and serving the highest quality product available.”
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.
