May 06, 2015 // Franchising.com // Simi Valley, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Simi Valley on April 29. Franchise owner Rich Vitolo held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, April 29 to Sunday, May 3 to support Madera Elementary School, Berylwood Elementary School, Arroyo Elementary School and Park View PTA.
The new restaurant, located at 1197 E. Los Angeles Ave., circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community each containing various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $2 donation to Madera Elementary School, Berylwood Elementary School, Arroyo Elementary School or Park View PTA.
“As a New Jersey native, I have always been a huge fan of Jersey Mike’s,” said Vitolo. “Following a career with the U.S. Army, I decided to pursue my passion for food and became a chef in Los Angeles. When the opportunity came along to own my own franchise with Jersey Mike’s I jumped at the chance. I couldn't be more pleased to be located in Simi Valley and I am looking forward to building relationships with the people that work and live here in in this great community."
Vitolo is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner 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
