April 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // CARY, N.C. – Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Cary on March 26. Restaurant operator Marcus Sledge held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 26 to Sunday, March 30 to support Panther Creek Athletic Boosters.
The new restaurant, located at 7177 O'Kelly Chapel Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub with a generous donation to Panther Creek Athletic Boosters.
"Over the past 16 years that I've been with the company, I've seen the Jersey Mike's brand build such great excitement and loyalty," said Sledge. "The main drivers of our success continue to be superior customer service, a top notch product, and a commitment to making our surrounding communities a better place."
Sledge added, "This new location in Cary gives us yet another opportunity to give back to this community. For this grand opening we have teamed up with the Panther Creek Athletic Boosters to help raise money for local student athletes."
Sledge 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.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
