October 23, 2013 // Franchising.com // ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Elizabeth City on October 16. Franchise owners Shaun Hayman and Lynwood P. Evans held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 16 to Sunday, October 20 to support Pasquotank County High School, Northeastern High School, and Camden County High School.
The new restaurant, located at 103 Tanglewood Parkway, circulated 10,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Pasquotank County High School, Northeastern High School, or Camden County High School.
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.
Hayman and Evans 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. 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.
"As a customer of Jersey Mike’s, I always enjoyed the superior service and the friendly banter during each visit," said Hayman. "In many ways, it was the great experience I had as a customer that led me to become the owner of my own Jersey Mike’s. As a company we are committed to giving back and making a difference which is why we chose to partner with three local schools for our grand opening fundraiser. We look forward to getting involved in the community and supporting the school systems in Elizabeth City."
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.
This is the first Jersey Mike’s location for Hayman and Evans.
