November 26, 2013 // Franchising.com // Chesterfield, MO - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Chesterfield on November 20. Franchise owner and area director for the region, Dan Shanahan, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 20 to Sunday, November 24 to support the Chesterfield Police Department Charities (Special Olympics Missouri) and the Monarch Fire Protection District Charities (Responder Rescue).
The new restaurant, located at 17273 Chesterfield Airport Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Chesterfield Police Department Charities (Special Olympics Missouri) or the Monarch Fire Protection District Charities (Responder Rescue).
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.
Shanahan exemplifies Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects franchise owners and area directors 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 are really excited to be opening a new Jersey Mike’s location in the St. Louis market," said Shanahan. "The opening of this location signifies the beginning of a great expansion for the brand in this region. Our goal is to open nearly 30 Jersey Mike’s Subs shops in St. Louis in the coming years."
Shanahan added, "We are gearing up to get the shop open and we are grateful for this opportunity to give back to the community. For the first five days that we are open, we will be raising money to help make a difference by supporting the Chesterfield Police Department and the Monarch Fire Protection District in their efforts to raise money for local causes."
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.
