April 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // FULLERTON, Calif. – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Fullerton on March 26. Franchise owner Clarissa Palomaria held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 26 to Sunday, March 23 to support Camp Titan.
The new restaurant, located at 2561 E. Chapman Avenue, circulated 50,000 flyers throughout the community. For each offer that is redeemed from the flyers, Jersey Mike's will donate $2 to Camp Titan. The flyers were distributed through direct mail and grass roots marketing efforts.
"Every Jersey Mike's grand opening is a chance to give back to the community," said Palomaria. "For this grand opening in Fullerton we chose to partner with Camp Titan. Camp Titan is an organization that is heavily supported by the Greek organizations at CSUF and we thought this would be a great opportunity for Jersey Mike's to get involved in the cause. At Jersey Mike's we aim to make a difference and we are hopeful that through our five day grand opening fundraiser, we will be able to help fund this awesome summer experience for local children."
Every year Camp Titan sends nearly 150 children on a weeklong trip to the San Bernardino Mountains, at no cost to the camper or his/her family. The goal at Camp Titan is to teach children an appreciation for nature, increase confidence and self-awareness, and of course for the campers to meet new friends.
Palomaria 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 second Jersey Mike's location for Palomaria. In May 2009, she opened her first Jersey Mike's in Brea at 955 East Birch Street.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 657-378-9490.
