"I was introduced to the Jersey Mike's brand a few years ago and was immediately taken with how much people loved the product," said Merullo. "The high quality sub sandwich and experience make Jersey Mike's a great fit for my team.
"We're excited to open our doors in Englewood and give back to the community,"Merullo added. "For our grand opening we are hosting a 5-day fundraiser to benefit Shiloh House. At Jersey Mike's, it's our goal to support the communities we serve. By giving back to Shiloh House, we can help fund services and programs that benefit local families."

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.
This is the first Jersey Mike's location for Merullo, Embree, and Cardillo.
