October 23, 2013 // Franchising.com // SALISBURY, Md. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Salisbury on October 16. Franchise owner Brad Mouly held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 16 to Sunday, October 20 to support Women Supporting Women.
The new restaurant, located at 1405 S. Salisbury Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Women Supporting Women.
Women Supporting Women is a grass-roots local non-profit organization which was founded in 1993 by three area women: Harriette Fine, Carol Prager and Sue Revelle. They started the group out of their homes after discovering the need to help women through their journey with breast cancer. Women Supporting Women has since grown to serve the entire Delmarva Peninsula, and currently have offices in Salisbury, Ocean City and Crisfield, with an additional support group in Cambridge.
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.
Mouly 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.
"Since October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought it would be fitting to partner with Women Supporting Women for our grand opening fundraiser," said Mouly. "Women Supporting Women is a great organization that focuses on helping women who are battling breast cancer that live in the immediate area. We are grateful for this opportunity to make a difference as we open our doors on October 16. Our goal is to continue to make a positive impact while serving up the authentic experience and product that our customers have come to count on from coast to coast."
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 second Jersey Mike’s location for Mouly. In July 2013, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
