June 08, 2012 // Franchising.com // North Charleston, SC - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in North Charleston on May 30. Franchise owners Ryan Delman, Phil Aylor, David Snipes, Jeremy Abell, and Taylor Burford held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., May 30 to Sun., June 3 to support March of Dimes.
The new restaurant, located at 7225 Rivers Avenue, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to March of Dimes.
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.
Ryan Delman and his partners 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.
“My career with Jersey Mike’s began 15 years ago in Greenville, North Carolina where I worked for $4.75 an hour,” said Delman. “Over the years I have seen Jersey Mike’s grow as a company and make a difference in the communities we serve. With our grand opening we have the opportunity to partner with March of Dimes and help raise money to improve the wellbeing of mothers and babies through healthy pregnancies. As a multi-store owner, I have seen firsthand the impact that Jersey Mike’s can have and I look forward to continuing this culture of charity that we value so much.”
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.
