October 30, 2014 // Franchising.com // Oceanside, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Oceanside on October 22. Franchise owner Morgan Ensberg held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 22 to Sunday, October 26 to support Semper Fi Fund.
The new restaurant, located at 4904 North River Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Semper Fi Fund.
The Semper Fi Fund, and its program America's Fund, provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post 9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities. Since establishing the Semper Fi Fund in 2004, they've issued more than 78,000 grants, totaling more than $96 million in assistance to over 12,300 of our heroes and their families.
"At Jersey Mike's we are committed to making a difference in the community," said Ensberg. "Partnering with Semper Fi Fund for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for a good cause and invite customers to try Jersey Mike's highly authentic product."
Ensberg 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 Ensberg. In October 2013, he opened his first location in Oceanside at 4111 Oceanside Boulevard.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
