May 12, 2015 // Franchising.com // Colorado Springs, CO - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened its fifth location in Colorado Springs on May 6. Franchise owner Tim Holliday held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 6 to Sunday, May 10 to support the Wounded Warrior Project.
The new restaurant, located at 5855 Constitution Avenue, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.
“At Jersey Mikes we are taking every measure to ensure a quality product goes out the door,” said Holliday. On giving back to the Wounded Warrior Project Holliday commented, "I support WWP for all of my grand openings because I grew up as the son of an Army Combat Veteran. Supporting WWP is my way of serving my generation of vets.”
Holliday 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.
This is Holliday’s fifth Jersey Mike’s location. In May 2013, Tim and his wife, Christy, opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Colorado Springs, CO in May 2013 and went on to open two more Colorado Springs locations in 2014 and 2015. Tim and Christy also own a Jersey Mike’s location in Fountain, Colo.
