March 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // WHITEWATER, Wis. – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Whitewater on March 18. Franchise owner Tom Sawyer held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Tuesday, March 18 to Sunday, March 23 to support Whitewater High School, Whitewater Middle School, and Washington Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 1116 West Main Street, circulated 9,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Whitewater High School, Whitewater Middle School, or Washington Elementary School.
"The Jersey Mike's model is all about giving back to the local community and serving a great product," said Sawyer. "As we build the Jersey Mike's brand in Wisconsin we will be creating opportunities to make a difference."
Sawyer added, "For our grand opening fundraiser we are teamed up with the Whitewater schools. Our goal is to support academic and athletic programs that motivate students toward achieving excellence."
Sawyer 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 Sawyer's first Jersey Mike's location.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (262) 472-9000.
