Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs
April 09, 2013 // Franchising.com // Buena Park, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Buena Park on March 27. Franchise owner Alvaro Garcia held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 27 to Sunday, March 31 to support Walker Junior High School, Buena Park Junior High School, Arthur F. Corey School, and Raymond Temple Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 5974 Orangethorpe Avenue, circulated 1,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Walker Junior High School, Buena Park Junior High School, Arthur F. Corey School, and Raymond Temple Elementary School. In addition, each school will receive 3,000 flyers that contain four separate offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will donate $2 to the respective school. The school to raise the most total money will receive an additional $1,500 donation from Jersey Mike’s.
Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike's continued its steady growth in 2012 opening 92 new restaurants throughout the country, a 33 percent increase in new store growth over 2011.
Alvaro Garcia 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. Since 2010, locations throughout the country have raised more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community, “said Garcia. “Working with the local schools for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for our students and invite customers to try Jersey Mike’s highly authentic product.”
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 11th Jersey Mike’s location for Alvaro Garcia. In June 2011, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Rancho Cucamonga. Garcia also owns Jersey Mike’s locations in Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, La Verne, Glendora, Upland, Marina del Rey, Long Beach, and Culver City. Most recently, Garcia opened a Jersey Mike’s location in Santa Monica on January 30.
