April 17, 2014 // Franchising.com // Pooler, GA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Pooler on April 9. Franchise owner Chris Brown and restaurant operator Davis Autry held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 9 to Sunday, April 13 to support the YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 246 Pooler Parkway, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the YMCA.
"I've been fortunate enough to have my cousin, Davis, by my side for many years as we have expanded the Jersey Mike's brand with 8 shops throughout the Southeast," said Brown. "Davis is not only my family but he is a trusted business partner and friend and we are so excited to finally open this location in Pooler. Every Jersey Mike's grand opening is an opportunity to give back to the community. In fact, for the first five days that we're open, we are inviting customers to help us raise money for the YMCA. The YMCA is currently working to fund after school and summer programs that are relied on by many families in the community."
Brown 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.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
