April 10, 2015 // Franchising.com // Dinky Town, MN - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Dinky Town on March 31. Franchise owner Bart Crockett, director of operations David Miller, and general manager Neil Starks held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Tuesday, March 31 to Sunday, April 5 to support the University of Minnesota Foundation and the Masonic Children’s Hospital.
The new restaurant, located at 509 14th Avenue SE, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the University of Minnesota Foundation and Masonic Children’s Hospital.
“All it took was one #7 Mike’s Way to get me hooked on opening my own Jersey Mike’s location,” said Crockett. “Everything about this restaurant concept, from the awesome sub, to the authentic menu, and the exceptional customer experience appealed to me as a business owner and further solidified my decision. I am grateful to be a part of the Jersey Mike’s family and for this opportunity to help the brand grow in the Twin Cities.”
Crockett added, “For our location in Dinky Town, we decided to team up with the University of Minnesota Foundation and Masonic Children’s Hospital to raise funds for the first six days that we are open and make a difference for our community. We hope to continue supporting local organizations and schools throughout the years so that we can make a meaningful impact for our customers.”
Crockett and Miller 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.
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 2nd Jersey Mike’s location for Bart Crockett and David Miller. In May 2014, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Vadnais Heights.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
