March 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // Austin, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Austin on March 18. Franchise owners Steven Spencer and David Spencer held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 18 to Sunday, March 22 to support John B. Connally High School Booster Club.
The new restaurant, located at 12901 North I-35, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to John B. Connally High School Booster Club.
“We are excited about the opening of our first Jersey Mike’s location in the Shops at Tech Ridge,” said David Spencer. “For our grand opening fundraiser, we have partnered with the John B. Conally High School Booster Club. We believe in the Jersey Mike’s philosophy of giving back to our community and look forward to this winning combination.”
The Spencers 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, Jersey Mike’s 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.
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 first Jersey Mike’s location for the Spencers.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
