September 18, 2014 // Franchising.com // Menifee, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Menifee on September 3. Franchise owners Boris and Laurie Ilic held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 3 to Sunday, September 7 to support Callie Kirkpatrick Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 27774 Newport Road, circulated 7,000 coupons throughout the community. The coupons will offer "buy one regular sub, get one regular sub free" with a $2 contribution to Callie Kirkpatrick Elementary School.
"As we continue to grow the Jersey Mike's brand in this region, we have the wonderful opportunity to increase awareness for local organizations and charities," said Laurie Ilic. "Opening our doors in the Menifee community will allow us to maintain our tradition of caring for our neighbors while serving our authentic sub sandwiches."
The Ilics 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
