November 24, 2014 - East Hanover, NJ - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in East Hanover on November 19. Restaurant operator Richie Maclachlan held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 19 to Sunday, November 23 to support the East Hanover School District PTA.
The new restaurant, located at 346 Route 10 West, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a generous donation to the East Hanover School District PTA.
"I started my career with Jersey Mike's at the Parsippany location just after graduating from high school," said Maclachlan. "This opportunity to operate our new shop in East Hanover is very exciting and we can't wait to open our doors. For the first five days that we're open, we will be holding a fundraiser for the East Hanover School District PTA. Our goal is to support our community and serve the best sub sandwiches in town."
Maclachlan is an exemplary Jersey Mike's operator 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.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
