October 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // Hesperia, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Hesperia on October 1. Franchise owner Adam Shamel and manager Celina Serrano held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 1 to Sunday, October 5 to support the Hesperia Police Activities League.
The new restaurant, located at 13255 Main Street, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Hesperia Police Activities League.
"We're excited to open our second Jersey Mike's in the High Desert," said Shamel. "Every location we open gives us a chance to support our community through a 5-day fundraiser. Here in Hesperia, we are teaming up with the Hesperia Police Activities League (HPAL). Our goal in this partnership is to support HPAL and their efforts in working with at-risk youth."
Shamel 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 second Jersey Mike's location for Shamel, who opened his first location in Apple Valley this past February.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
