June 04, 2015 // Franchising.com // La Quinta, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in La Quinta on May 20. Franchise owners Sameh Samaan and Wahid Karas, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 27 to Sunday, May 31 to support Believing for Desi.
The new restaurant, located at 79174 Highway 111, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Believing for Desi.
“We are proud to support Believing for Desi during our grand opening fundraiser,” said Samaan. “Opening this new La Quinta location is a great opportunity to make a difference and help support our community. We’re very excited to begin serving the authentic Jersey Mike’s experience here in La Quinta.”
Samaan and Karas are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who share the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are 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 the fourth Jersey Mike’s location for Samaan and Karas. They opened their first store in Riverside in October 2013. The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (760) 564-2777.
