June 03, 2015 // Franchising.com // Bozeman, MT - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened its first Montana location, in Bozeman, on May 27. Franchise owners Victor and Jasmine Marabella held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 27 to Sunday, May 31 to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County.
The new restaurant, located at 1531 W. Main St., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County.
Montana is the 40th state for the fast-growing, fast-casual restaurant. Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide and it recently placed #8 on the 2015 Fast Casual Top 100 Movers and Shakers list. The company was also named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2014 Top 100.
“Jasmine and I are very excited to bring the first Jersey Mike's to Montana,” said Victor Marabella. “The first time we had Jersey Mike’s, we were automatically hooked. They were the best subs we ever had!” Jasmine and Victor grew up in California and both went to Montana State University.
“We are proud to be partnered up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County,” said Jasmine Marabella. “They have a fantastic mentoring program and a positive impact on the community. We are looking forward to serving our community and cannot wait to see everyone’s smiles after they take their first bite of a Jersey Mike’s sub!” Victor’s favorite sub is the #11 and Jasmine’s is the #9.
