November 26, 2013 // Franchising.com // Puyallup, WA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Puyallup on November 20. Franchise owner Jeff Gates held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 20 to Sunday, November 24 to support the Puyallup High School Vikings and the Rogers High School Rams.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 4009 S Meridian, hosted a 5-day fundraiser with proceeds supporting the Puyallup High School Vikings and the Rogers High School Rams. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution. Ten thousand coupons were distributed throughout the community.
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.
Gates 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.
“We had a great time at our grand opening in Gig Harbor back in July and we are gearing up to do it all over again,” said Gates. “For the first five days we are open, we will be raising money to fund student programs at two of the local high schools. We are so grateful for this opportunity to give back to the community and introduce the Jersey Mike’s brand in Puyallup.”
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 Gates. In July 2013, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Gig Harbor.
