January 20, 2014 - Waterford, MI - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened in Waterford on January 15. Franchise owner Edward Semaan along with his son and operating partner Harvey Semaan held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 15 to Sunday, January 19 to support Kettering High School and Pierce Middle School.
The new restaurant, located at 4403 Highland Road, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Kettering High School or Pierce Middle School.
"It was the high-quality product and friendly atmosphere at Jersey Mike's that sparked my interest in franchising with this brand," said Edward Semaan. "A huge part of what we do at Jersey Mike's revolves around making a difference in the community. In fact, for the first 5 days that we are open we are supporting two local schools to help give back to our youth and fund student activities and programs."
Semaan 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 the 1st Jersey Mike's location for Semaan.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
