September 30, 2014 - Plano, TX - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Plano on September 24. Franchise owners Drew and Staci Sutton held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 24 to Sunday, September 28 to support Plano Sports Authority.
The new restaurant, located at 7120 Coit Road, circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Plano Sports Authority.
"I came across Jersey Mike's while living in Nashville," said Drew Sutton. "There was a shop close to my church and every Sunday on my way home, I would grab a sub to eat while watching football. Needless to say, I was always impressed by the quality of the product and service I received. Down the road, when my wife, Staci, and I were considering starting a business, she had the idea to pursue the opportunity with Jersey Mike's."
Sutton added, "At Jersey Mike's, it's tradition to open each location with a community fundraiser. As a former athlete, I know firsthand the impact that sports can have on a child's future. For that reason, we teamed up with the Plano Sports Authority to help fund scholarships that make it possible for more children to participate in youth sports."
Drew Sutton is a former professional baseball player for various major league teams including the Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Sutton played for 10 years and had the opportunity to travel to many U.S. cities where he enjoyed stopping in at Jersey Mike's along the way.
The Suttons 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.

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.
