July 10, 2014 - Bradenton, FL - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Bradenton on July 9. Franchise owners, and father and son pair, Patrick J. George and Patrick S. George held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 9 to Sunday, July 20 to support the Manatee County YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 5820 Ranch Lake Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Manatee County YMCA.
"We're excited to bring the brand further out east with this new location," said Patrick S. George. "Opening our doors is also an opportunity to support one of our community partners, the Manatee County YMCA. We've worked with the YMCA in the past for our Month of Giving fundraiser, which takes place every March. As members of the Y, we are grateful for all they do for our family and the community, and we are always looking for ways to give back to this organization."
The Georges 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.
This is the second Jersey Mike's location for the Georges. In May 2011, they opened their first Jersey Mike's in Bradenton.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
