August 15, 2014 // Franchising.com // Timonium, MD - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Timonium on July 30. Franchise owners Philip Horn and Donald Bauer held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 30 to Sunday, August 3 to support Cool Kids Campaign.
The new restaurant, located at 1942 York Road, circulated 4,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Cool Kids Campaign. To accompany the free sub coupons, Jersey Mike's is distributing 2,500 flyers that contain various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike's will donate $2 to Cool Kids Campaign.
Cool Kids Campaign is devoted to improving the quality of life for pediatric oncology patients and their families by focusing on the academic, social and emotional needs brought on by a cancer diagnosis.
"Opening a Jersey Mike's location in Timonium is a great opportunity for the brand," said Bauer. "We are excited to serve new customers and make a difference for our local community. In fact, for the first five days that we're open we are raising money for the Cool Kids Campaign. At Jersey Mike's we believe in making a positive impact in our communities while serving a top quality sub sandwich and that's exactly what we plan to do here in Timonium."
Horn and Bauer 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
