April 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // New Providence, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in New Providence on April 22. Operating partner Filomeno Monteiro held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, April 22 to Tuesday, April 28 to support New Providence High School, New Providence Middle School, Salt Brook Elementary School and Allen W. Roberts Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 1260 Springfield Avenue circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community with various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $2 donation to New Providence High School, New Providence Middle School, Salt Brook Elementary School or Allen W. Roberts Elementary School.
“I have been with Jersey Mike’s Subs for over ten years and I am so excited to open my first location,” said Monteiro. “Opening our doors in such a tight knit community made partnering with the local schools for our grand opening fundraiser a natural fit. Supporting the local schools is the best way to get involved within the community as well as support important organizations.”
Monteiro is exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partner 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 $13 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities throughout the country.
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
