October 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // Minneapolis, MN - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Minneapolis on October 1. Franchise owners Joe Nachtrab, Luke Nachtrab and Michael McGuire, along with manager Nick Ryskamp, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 1 to Sunday, October 5 to support Lake Harriet Community School and Kenwood School.
The new restaurant, located at 1504 West Lake Street, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Lake Harriet Community School or Kenwood School.
"At Jersey Mike's we're grateful for the opportunity to connect with our local community, said Ryskamp. “I love being a part of a brand that's committed to creating relationships and giving back to the communities and people we serve."
McGuire and the Nachtrabs 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 (612) 224-9757.
