April 10, 2015 // Franchising.com // Wheaton, MD - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Wheaton on April 1. Franchise owner Danny Malamis and Jersey Mike’s Team Washington Vice President Kyle Yancey held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from April 1 through Sunday, April 5 to support Bethany Christian Services.
The new restaurant, located at 2800 University Boulevard, circulated 20,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Bethany Christian Services.
“We are excited to open store number 32 in the DC area market,” said Yancey. “Our intention opening any of our locations falls in line with our core value of having a positive influence on the lives of others. This applies not only to the communities we serve but also to the positive impact and opportunity we provide our team members.”
Yancey is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s operator who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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.
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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
