September 3, 2014 - Ramsey, NJ - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Ramsey on August 27. Franchise owners Bradford Fritts and Steve Korman held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 27 to Sunday, August 31 to support Children's Aid and Family Services of New Jersey.
The new restaurant, located at 557 North Franklin Turnpike, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Children's Aid and Family Services of New Jersey. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
Children's Aid and Family Services preserves, protects and, when needed, provides families. Motivated by compassion for vulnerable children, young adults, frail elderly and their families, it provides high-quality and innovative services that meet their social, educational and emotional needs.
Children's Aid and Family Services is one of northern New Jersey's leading nonprofit providers of human services and child welfare programs. It helps children who don't have families able to care for them, and it supports children, young adults, the elderly and their families through the everyday challenges and transitions in life.
"As a native of Point Pleasant Beach, I've been around the Jersey Mike's product and culture my entire life," said Korman. "Expanding the brand in North Jersey, and more specifically in Ramsey, is a great opportunity. We're excited to serve more customers in our home state and we look forward to opening our doors on August 27."
Fritts added, "We're grateful to partner with a community organization like Children's Aid and Family Services for our grand opening fundraiser. Having spent some time living in Bergen County, it's really great to see Jersey Mike's moving in and making a difference in Ramsey."
Fritts and Korman 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 the first Jersey Mike's location for Fritts and Korman who plan to open a total of five locations in Bergen County.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (201) 962-8898.
