March 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // COLUMBIA, Md. – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Columbia on March 12. Franchise owner Danny Malamis and restaurant operator Cliff Brown held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 12 to Sunday, March 16 to support Young Life Howard County.
The new restaurant, located at 6630 Marie Curie Drive, circulated 15,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Young Life Howard County. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
"My goal, every day, is to have some fun at work," said Brown. "Working for Jersey Mike's gives me an opportunity to interact with customers and team members on a daily basis, and help make their day just a little bit better."
Brown added, "At Jersey Mike's, we aim to make a positive impact in the communities we serve. For that reason, we have teamed up with Young Life Howard County for our five day grand opening fundraiser. Much like Young Life, Jersey Mike's takes pride in developing our youth to be successful and contributing members of society and we are excited to support this cause."
Malamis 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 1,300 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 seventh Jersey Mike's location for Malamis. In February 2010, he opened his first Jersey Mike's location in Laurel. Malamis is the owner of additional locations in Germantown, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Laurel, Bowie, and Greenbelt.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
