October 23, 2013 // Franchising.com // BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Bakersfield on October 16. Franchise owners Stacy Knight and Carrie Asbury held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 16 to Sunday, October 20 to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The new restaurant, located at 11350 Ming Avenue, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
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.
Knight and Asbury 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.
“The greatest blessing in being a part of the Jersey Mike’s family has been the opportunity to give back to others,” said Asbury. “Over the years we have had the ability to make a difference for so many people in our local community and this grand opening fundraiser is yet another chance to make a positive impact. As we continue to grow the Jersey Mike’s brand in Bakersfield, we are constantly reminded of how important it is to support our community. Stacy and I are thrilled to partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and we hope our contribution will support many families and children in the area.”
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 third Jersey Mike’s location for Knight and Asbury. In April 2009, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Bakersfield at 4715 Coffee Road. In April 2011, they opened an additional location in Bakersfield at 5120 Stockdale Highway.
