March 10, 2015 // Franchising.com // Valdosta, GA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Valdosta on March 4. Franchise owners Kimberly and Angelo Crowell held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 4 to Sunday, March 15 to support Valdosta State University Athletics.
The new restaurant, located at 2941 North Ashley Street, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Valdosta State University Athletics.
“It has always been important to us to serve our local community, and Jersey Mike’s has given us the fantastic opportunity to do so with this grand opening,” said Kimberly Crowell. “Through our partnership with Valdosta State University Athletics we are able to raise money for a worthy cause and introduce Jersey Mike’s to the Valdosta community.”
The Crowells 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 1,500 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 sixth Jersey Mike’s location for Kimberly and Angelo Crowell. The Crowells own additional locations in Tallahassee, FL and Thomasville, GA.
