May 19, 2015 // Franchising.com // Oak Creek, WI - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Oak Creek on May 13. Franchise owner Jim Flanagan held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 13 to Sunday, May 17 to support Oak Creek High School, East Middle School, and Edgewood Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 8880 S. Howell Avenue, circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Oak Creek High School, East Middle School, and Edgewood Elementary School.
“Being born and raised in Wisconsin, I’m proud to be back in my home state to open a Jersey Mike’s in Oak Creek,” said Flanagan. “We have partnered up with three great schools in the area and we are looking forward to growing alongside such a fantastic community for many years to come!”
Flanagan 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
