March 28, 2014 // Franchising.com // SPRINGFIELD, Va. – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Springfield on March 19. Restaurant operator Pat Foley held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 19 to Sunday, March 23 to support the R.E. Lee High School Athletic Booster Club.
The new restaurant, located at 7000B Brookfield Plaza, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to R.E. Lee High School Athletic Booster Club.
"A bustling community like Springfield is a great place for growing the Jersey Mike's brand," said Foley. "We are excited to open our doors and invite new customers to try our highly authentic product."
Foley added, "Our grand opening will focus around giving back to the community through a five day fundraiser. We have teamed up with the R.E. Lee High School Athletic Booster club to support student athletic programs. Our goal is to make a difference by funding high school sports programs that are so important to our youth and our community."
Foley 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.
This is the third Jersey Mike's location for Foley. Foley opened his first location in January 2012 in Alexandria. He is also the owner of a Jersey Mike's location in Stafford that opened in June 2012.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (703) 992-7112.
