April 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in San Antonio on March 26. Franchise owners Derek and Michelle Murph held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 26 to Sunday, March 30 to support the Warren High School Band and Athletic Programs.
The new restaurant, located at 5515 Tezel Road, circulated 20,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Warren High School Band and Athletic Programs.
"Over the past few years we've had the opportunity to expand the Jersey Mike's brand into the San Antonio market," said Derek Murph. "With each grand opening we are given the chance to support our local community with a five day fundraiser. For this opening, we are partnered up with the Warren High School Band and Athletic Programs to help fund extracurricular activities for our local students."
The Murphs 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.
This is the fourth Jersey Mike's location for the Murphs. In August 2011, they opened their first Jersey Mike's in San Antonio at 8603 State Highway 151. The Murphs are the owners of two additional San Antonio locations.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
