December 18, 2012 // Franchising.com // TAMPA, Fla., – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Tampa on December 12. Franchise owner Bill Atkins held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 12 to Sunday, December 16 to support the Children’s Cancer Center.
The new restaurant, located at 2121 W. Kennedy Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Children’s Cancer Center.
The Children’s Cancer Center works on the philosophy that when a child is diagnosed, the entire family is really diagnosed. With 25 programs and services currently helping over 850 families, the Children’s Cancer Center offers support to all members of the family and is available throughout every step of their difficult journey – from diagnosis and treatment, to survivorship as well as bereavement.
Bill Atkins 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.
“Jersey Mike’s commitment to making a difference coupled with an exceptional product is what really attracted me as a business owner,” said Bill Atkins. “This grand opening fundraiser is a unique opportunity to support the Children’s Cancer Center and give back to a very worthy cause.”
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 Bill Atkins.
