May 02, 2014 // Franchising.com // Chapel Hill, NC - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in North Chapel Hill on April 30. Franchise owners Charlie Farris and Clint Winslow, along with managers Brendan Turk and Brad Kampa, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 30 to Sunday, May 4 to support Chapel Hill High School and East Chapel Hill High School.
The new restaurant, located at 1802 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in the Chapel Hill North Center, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Chapel Hill High School or East Chapel Hill High School.
"Opening another location in Chapel Hill gives us the opportunity to better serve our customers," said Farris. "Our goal is to not only provide top notch service in the traditional sense, but also to serve our customers by giving back to the community. We believe partnering with our local high schools is the best way to make a positive impact in Chapel Hill. Public schools continue to be underfunded and we want to help close that gap so that school can continue to be a positive place for our youth."
Farris and Winslow 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 $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 750,000 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. A 2014 Technomic report ranked Jersey Mike's in the top five fastest-growing restaurant chains with sales above $200 million.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike's fans who crave their subs made Mike's Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of "the juice" – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection. Jersey Mike's premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
