October 22, 2013 // Franchising.com // Oceanside, Calif. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Oceanside on October 16. Franchise owner Morgan Ensberg held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 16 to Sunday, October 20 to support the Semper Fi Fund.
The new restaurant, located at 4111 Oceanside Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Semper Fi Fund.
The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit set up to provide immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We direct urgently needed resources to post 9-11 service members within 24-72 hours of request.
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.
Ensberg 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 almost $7 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
"I have always been a ‘sandwich guy’ and before becoming a franchise owner with Jersey Mike’s, I would frequent the Solana Beach location three to four times a week" said Ensberg. "Jersey Mike’s is very much a neighborhood sub shop with a highly authentic product; it was these aspects of the business that motivated me to come on board with this company. During the first five days we are open we have the opportunity to support the Semper Fi Fund. Working with this organization allows us to give back to the Oceanside community in a way that is very meaningful for the many military families that live here."
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way® with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature olive oil blend, 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.
