August 08, 2012 // Franchising.com // Melbourne, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Melbourne on July 25. Franchise owner Bryan Price held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 25 to Sunday, August 5 to support the Melbourne High School Athletics Department.
The new restaurant, located at 90 West Hibiscus Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Melbourne High School Athletics Department. Half of these 10,000 coupons were valid through July 29 with the other half valid through August 5. Additional offers were also available in the Florida Today.
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.
Bryan Price exemplifies 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 many local schools continue to struggle with budget cuts, supporting the Melbourne High School Athletics Department is a great way for Jersey Mike’s to give back to the community,” said Price. “We want to do whatever we can to help keep the athletic programs afloat, and we are looking forward to a lasting relationship with Melbourne High School and the students. We invite all members of the community to come to our grand opening celebration to support these hardworking student athletes and help us make a difference.”
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 3rd Jersey Mike’s location for Bryan Price. In August 2010, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location on 1515 Palm Bay Road and in May 2011 he opened another on 1070 North Wickham Road, both in Melbourne.
