March 03, 2015 // Franchising.com // Del Mar, CA - Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Del Mar on February 25. Franchise owners Cathy and Mike Brown held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, February 25 to Sunday, March 1 to support the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF).
The new restaurant, located at 2626 Del Mar Heights Road, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to DMSEF. There will also be special flyers distributed to the community schools, each containing various offers. For each school flyer coupon redeemed, Jersey Mike's will make a $3 donation to DMSEF.
"We are excited to be opening a Jersey Mike's store in our own community and to support the local schools during our grand opening fundraiser,"said Cathy. "Having lived in the area for nearly 30 years we feel a special local connection and look forward to being a positive asset to the Del Mar & Carmel Valley area for many years to come."
Cathy and Mike Brown have been residents of the Del Mar area since 1987, and their three children attended local schools. They 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. Jersey Mike's truly is "A Sub Above".
This is the eighth Jersey Mike's location for the Browns. In August 2009, they opened their first Jersey Mike's location at 8590 Rio San Diego Drive in Mission Valley. The Browns also own Jersey Mike's locations in San Diego, Santa Clara, and Mountain View. The Del Mar restaurant will be managed by Chris Richey, and the store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (858) 755-7752.
