July 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // Virginia Beach, VA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Virginia Beach on July 16. Franchise owners Martin Anderson and Clark Stallings, along with restaurant operator Daniel Hoggard, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 16 to Sunday, July 20 to support Young Life.
The new restaurant, located at 1909 Landstown Centre Way, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Young Life.
"I've had the opportunity to be a part of the Jersey Mike's brand for nearly four years now," said Hoggard. "Growing along with the company and overseeing several shops has been a great experience and I'm looking forward to this new location in Virginia Beach."
Hoggard added, "Once again we're partnering with Young Life as our charitable recipient for the grand opening fundraiser. Young Life is an organization that works with high school students to spread Christian values and encourages positive and healthy lifestyles. In addition to working with Young Life as a community partner, we've had the chance to hire and work with many Young Life teens. We're grateful to have such a strong relationship with Young Life, and as always, we look forward to supporting this great cause."
Anderson, Stallings, and Hoggard are exemplary Jersey Mike's franchise owners and 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.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
