November 21, 2014 // Franchising.com // Renton Highlands, WA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Renton Highlands on November 5. Franchise owners Ray and Kristina Neyens and their partners, Red Polo Ventures LLC, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 5 to Sunday, November 9 to support the Hazen High School PTSA.
The new restaurant, located at 4710 NE 4th Street, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Hazen High School PTSA.
"We've seen the Jersey Mike's brand grow tremendously since opening our first shop in the Seattle market in 2003," said Ray Neyens. "We're very fortunate to open our doors in Renton Highlands and continue serving our authentic product and experience. As is tradition at Jersey Mike's, our grand opening will focus on supporting the community through a 5-day fundraiser. We chose to partner with the Hazen High School PTSA to help fund programs and activities at our local high school."
The Neyens' 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.
