March 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in University Place on March 5. Franchise owners Gavin Foster, Angel Foster, and Heather Martin held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 5 to Sunday, March 9 to support the Curtis High School Athletic Department.
The new restaurant, located at 3555 Market Place, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Curtis High School Athletic Department.
"On our search for the perfect business opportunity, we were immediately drawn to Jersey Mike's," said Gavin Foster. "The quality of the product combined with the quality of the customer experience make Jersey Mike's a cut above the competition, and now we don't have to drive so far for our favorite subs!"
Foster added, "We are excited to partner with the Curtis High School Athletic Department for our grand opening fundraiser. At Jersey Mike's, we aim to make a positive impact in the communities we serve and partnering with our local high school is the best way we can think of to get involved."
The Fosters and Martin are exemplary Jersey Mike's franchise owners who share the company's commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are 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
