August 14, 2014 - Gainesville, VA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Gainesville on August 13. Franchise owners Pat and Kathy White, and manager Jarrod Weaver, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 13 to Sunday, August 17 to support Team Ribbons for the Cure.
The new restaurant, located at 8136 Stonewall Shops Square, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Team Ribbons for the Cure.
"We're so excited to open our doors in Gainesville," said Pat White. "This is such a beautiful and active community and the perfect place to open our fifth Jersey Mike's location. Every grand opening is a chance for us to give back to the community through a five day fundraiser. This time around we're partnering up with Team Ribbons for the Cure to support their participation in Relay for Life."
He added, "There are so many opportunities to become involved in this community and we can't wait to open our doors and serve our authentic sub sandwiches."
The Whites 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 White's fifth Jersey Mike's location. In December 2011, he opened his first Jersey Mike's in Fairfax. He owns additional locations in Manassas, Culpeper, and Chantilly.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
