June 18, 2012 // Franchising.com // San Diego, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in San Diego on June 20. Franchise owners Brad and Sharon Remy and Jacque and Christine Moutier held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., June 20 to Sun., June 24 to support UC San Diego Women and Infants Services.
The new restaurant, located at 3975 5th Avenue, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community, which offered a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to UC San Diego Women and Infants Services.
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.
Families like the Remys and Moutiers 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.
“As a regular Jersey Mike’s customer at the Solana Beach location, I fell in love with the product and culture of Jersey Mike’s,” said Brad Remy. “The commitment to charity that is embodied by Jersey Mike’s is really important to us as business owners. Partnering with the UCSD Women and Infants Services program is an opportunity for us to give back to an organization that is close to the Moutiers, as their daughter was a patient there in the neonatal intensive care unit years ago. We are excited to open our doors and we are happy to be a part of the Jersey Mike’s family and tradition of excellence.”
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 first Jersey Mike’s location for the Remys and the Moutiers.
