July 10, 2014 - Phoenix, AZ - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Phoenix on July 9. Franchise operators Alicia Rosenfield and Duane Layton held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 9 to Sunday, July 13 to support Phoenix Children's Hospital.
The new restaurant, located at 1743 East Camelback Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Phoenix Children's Hospital.
"At Jersey Mike's we are committed to making a difference in the community," said Layton. "The five day grand opening fundraiser gives us a perfect opportunity to give back to children in need by supporting the Phoenix Children's Hospital."
Layton added, "This will be the seventh Jersey Mike's location in the valley for our franchise group, and the 19th location in Arizona. The brand is hitting a growth spurt in the area and we're happy to be part of the expansion in Phoenix."
Rosenfield and Layton are exemplary Jersey Mike's restaurant operators 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.
