August 14, 2014 - Lubbock, TX - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Lubbock on August 13. Franchise owner Brian Kelley of Paradigm Investment Group, along with Greg Hazard, co-owner and chief operations officer for Paradigm, and Johnny Cutter, director of operations, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 13 to Sunday, August 17 to support the BraveCort Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 6319 82nd Street, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Bravecort Foundation.
The BraveCort Foundation was founded by Brian and Andrea Kelley in memory of their son Cort. BraveCort focuses its efforts on research in the field of childhood cancer.
"We welcome the opportunity to support BraveCort and its commitment to funding research in the fight against childhood cancer," said Hazard. "Jersey Mike's is a unique brand in that we have a culture of providing an exceptional product and of giving back to our customers and community. In other words, we're not just in it to make a buck but to make a true difference. Without even being officially open, we feel as though the community has already embraced us with open arms. We're very grateful for this opportunity to open our doors in Lubbock."
Kelley, Hazard, and Cutter 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
