January 20, 2014 - Fleming Island, FL - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened in Fleming Island on January 15. Franchise owner Andrew Maider held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 15 to Sunday, January 26 to support the Fleming Island High School Athletics Department.
The new restaurant, located at 1647 County Road 220, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Fleming Island School Athletics Department.
"A friend of mine who is a New Jersey native himself was the one who sparked my interest in franchising with Jersey Mike's," said Maider. "Opening my first store in Fleming Island has truly been an exciting experience. The local pride and close knit nature of this small island is so reminiscent of Point Pleasant, which is where Jersey Mike's was founded. We look forward to opening our doors in support of this great community and we are hopeful that Jersey Mike's will be a great fit here on Fleming Island."
Maider is an exemplary Jersey Mike's franchise owner who shares the company's commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike's locations throughout the country have raised nearly $7.5 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 600,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike's now has 1,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike's fans who 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, 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 nearly 60 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 Maider's first Jersey Mike's location.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (904) 264-2100.
