January 20, 2014 - Red Bank, NJ - Jersey Mike's Subs, founded in Point Pleasant and a staple at the Jersey Shore, opened in Red Bank on January 15. Restaurant operator Lewis Thompson held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 15 to Sunday, January 19 to support The Community YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 100 Water Street, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to The Community YMCA.
"Jersey Mike's was my first job in high school and since then I have worked in a number of different Jersey Mike's locations around the country," said Thompson. "Being back home in Monmouth county and continuing my career with Jersey Mike's is a homerun for me. This grand opening is a special opportunity for us to give back to the community and expand our roots here at the Jersey Shore."
Thompson is an exemplary Jersey Mike's restaurant operator 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.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 732-530-5333.
