January 09, 2015 // Franchising.com // West Orange, NJ - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in West Orange on December 17. Franchise owner James Pond held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 17 to Sunday, December 21 to support West Orange High School.
The new restaurant, located at 235 Prospect Ave, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to West Orange High School.
"I've been a fan of Jersey Mike's for as long as I can remember!" said Pond. "Jersey Mike's has always been a part of my life and was even there to cater 230 giant subs on my wedding day. I love the brand, the culture, and of course the food and could not be more excited to open in West Orange."
Pond 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 Pond's first Jersey Mike's location.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
