February 05, 2015 // Franchising.com // Woodbury, MN - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Woodbury on January 28. Franchise owners Brian and Stacy Risch held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 28 to Sunday, February 1 to support Liberty Ridge Elementary School and Lake Middle School.
The new restaurant, located at 429 Commerce Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Liberty Ridge Elementary School or Lake Middle School.
"Coming on board as a Jersey Mike's franchise owner has been an encouraging and rewarding experience," said Brian Risch. "Jersey Mike's is a fantastic brand to be a part of and we could not be more excited to open our second location. Our grand opening gives us the unique opportunity to support our local students by raising funds for Liberty Ridge Elementary School and Lake Middle School. I have always been passionate about supporting our schools and I cannot think of a better way to give back to my community."
The Risches 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 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. Currently, Jersey Mike's franchisees throughout the nation are gearing up for the 5th Annual Jersey Mike's Month of Giving in March. Last year, $2.1 million was raised for more than 100 different charities nationwide.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike's now has 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation's Restaurant News 2014 Top 100 and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
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 the Risches. In April 2013, they opened their first location at 7455 Currell Boulevard in Woodbury.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
