September 30, 2014 - Pico Rivera, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Pico Rivera on September 17. Franchise owner Alvaro Garcia held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, September 17 to Sunday, September 28 to support various community schools and organizations including: Pico Rivera Parks and Recreation, The Whole Child, El Rancho High School, Rio Vista Elementary School, Rivera Elementary School, and South Ranchito Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 8947 Washington Boulevard, circulated 30,000 flyers throughout the community containing various coupons. For each coupon that is redeemed, Jersey Mike's will donate $3 to the respective beneficiary.
"At Jersey Mike's we are committed to making a difference in the community," said Garcia. "Working with a variety of local organizations for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money and invite customers to try Jersey Mike's highly authentic product."
Garcia is an exemplary Jersey Mike's franchise owner 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.
This is the 20th Jersey Mike's location for Alvaro Garcia. In June 2011, he opened his first Jersey Mike's location in Rancho Cucamonga. Garcia also owns Jersey Mike's locations in Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, La Verne, Glendora, Upland, Marina del Rey, Long Beach, Culver City, Santa Ana, Santa Monica, San Dimas, Chino, Rosemead, Montebello and Rancho Cucamonga.
