March 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // Albuquerque, New Mexico - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Albuquerque on March 18. Franchise owners Thomas McCollum and Jeffrey McCollum, along with operating partners Shane Jones and Jake McCollum, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 18 to Sunday, March 22 to support Camp Enchantment.
The new restaurant, located at 2621 Coors Blvd., circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Camp Enchantment.
“Tom and I are very excited to bring the first Jersey Mike's to New Mexico,” said Jeffrey McCollum. “We are proud to be associated with Jersey Mike’s as they not only offer a high quality product, but also a great corporate culture. We look forward to serving New Mexicans for many years to come!”
Thomas and Jeffrey 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. All March long, franchisees throughout the nation are celebrating the 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving. Last year, $2.1 million was raised for more than 100 different charities nationwide.
