July 8, 2014 - Freehold, NJ - Jersey Mike's Subs, founded in Point Pleasant and a staple at the Jersey Shore, opened in Freehold on July 2. Restaurant operator Chad Faulkner held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 2 to Sunday, July 6 to support Youth Soccer of Freehold.
The new restaurant, located at 3528 Rt. 9 South, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Youth Soccer of Freehold.
"I began working at Jersey Mike's Lavallette location right after graduating from college," said Faulkner. "Within two weeks I knew I wanted to start a career with this company and shortly thereafter I was promoted to assistant manager in Long Branch. Being a part of opening the Long Branch location and seeing it grow has been a valuable asset as I take on the role of restaurant operator in Freehold."
Faulkner added, "For our grand opening we are hosting a fundraiser with the Youth Soccer of Freehold, an organization that has proven year after year to be very loyal and important to the community. I truly believe that if you give back to your customers and community, they will return with the same generosity."
Faulkner is an exemplary Jersey Mike's 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 $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
