September 04, 2014 // Franchising.com // Maple Grove, MN - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Maple Grove on August 20. Franchise owners John Griparis, Jeff Berns, and Tim Quiring held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 20 to Sunday, August 24 to support the District 279 Foundation and the Maplebrook Soccer Association.
The new restaurant, located at 16375 County Road 30, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the District 279 Foundation or the Maplebrook Soccer Association.
"Partnering with the District 279 Foundation and the Maplebrook Soccer Association means that we can get involved with our community in a meaningful way," said Griparis. "By supporting the educational and recreational needs of our local youth, we can help ensure higher standards of learning and foster healthy competition for young athletes."
He added, "We're grateful to bring Jersey Mike's to a family-focused community like Maple Grove. We truly believe in the quality and authenticity of our sub sandwich and we're excited to introduce it to new customers."
Griparis, Berns, and Quiring 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
