The new restaurant, located at 4919 South Regal Street, circulated 15,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Hamblen Elementary School, Moran Prairie Elementary School, or Mullan Road Elementary School.
Gates is a strong advocate for making a difference and truly believes in the Jersey Mike’s brand principle that, “We don’t give to get, we give to give.”

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.

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 third Jersey Mike’s for Gates who also owns locations in Gig Harbor and Puyallup.
