March 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // HOLMDEL, N.J. – Jersey Mike's Subs, founded in Point Pleasant and a staple at the Jersey Shore, opened in Holmdel on March 5. Restaurant operator Zach Fioretti held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 5 to Sunday, March 9 to support Holmdel High School and Raritan High School.
The new restaurant, located at 2143 State Route 35, circulated 6,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub with a generous donation of $2 to either Holmdel High School or Raritan High School.
"As a high school student, I began working at the flagship Jersey Mike's location in Point Pleasant Beach, said Fioretti. "I would have never imagined that my part-time job as a teenager would lead me to this point in my career. Serving as the operator for our first location in Holmdel is a great opportunity and I'm excited to help grow the Jersey Mike's brand in Monmouth County."
Fioretti added, "The Holmdel community is a great fit for what we do at Jersey Mike's. For the first five days that we are open we are raising money for Holmdel High School and Raritan High School. Our goal is to make a positive impact on the community by supporting local student programs and activities."
Fioretti 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 1,300 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.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (732) 847-3381.
