September 3, 2014 - Deerfield Beach, FL - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Deerfield Beach on August 20. Restaurant operator Steve Leger held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 20 to Sunday, August 31 to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.
The new restaurant, located at 1069 East Hillsboro Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a generous donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County.
"Jersey Mike's was my first job as a teenager in 2008," said Leger. "In the past several years I've had the opportunity to see the company grow and even met with Founder and CEO Peter Cancro. It's great to be a part of a company culture that promotes growth from within and young entrepreneurship. I'm grateful for this new position as restaurant manager, and I'm excited to be a part of the Deerfield Beach community."
Leger added, "At Jersey Mike's we believe in making a difference for others. For every new location that's opened, we always incorporate a community fundraiser. In Deerfield Beach we are raising money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County to help fund programs and activities for our local youth."
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to "enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens."
Leger is an exemplary Jersey Mike's restaurant operator who shares the company's commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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
