February 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // San Marcos, TX - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in San Marcos on February 18. Franchise owner Jason Odom held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 18 to Sunday, February 22 to support the San Marcos Youth Services Bureau and the Texas State Student Volunteer Connection.
The new restaurant, located at 301 N. Guadalupe (formerly the post office), circulated 15,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the San Marcos Youth Services Bureau or the Texas State Student Volunteer Connection.
"At Jersey Mike's we are committed to making a difference in the community," said Odom. "Supporting the San Marcos Youth Services Bureau and the Texas State Student Volunteer Connection for our grand opening fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for two great organizations and invite customers to try Jersey Mike's highly authentic product."
Odom 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 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 Odom's fourth Jersey Mike's location. In September 2013, he opened his first location in Pflugerville. Odom is the owner of additional locations in New Braunfels and Cedar Park.
The restaurant's hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
