June 16, 2015 // Franchising.com // Omaha, NE - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Omaha on June 10. Franchise owner Jeff Marcotte and operating partner Gary George, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 10 to Sunday, June 14 to support Food Bank for the Heartland.
The new restaurant, located at 1303 S. 72nd St., circulated 12,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Food Bank for the Heartland.
“We are proud to be associated with Jersey Mike’s Subs as they not only offer a high quality product, but also a great corporate culture. We are looking forward to serving our community for many years to come,” said Marcotte, whose favorite sub is the #13 The Original Italian.
“It’s important to give back and we are committed to making a difference in our community,” said George. “For this grand opening, we have partnered up with Food Bank for the Heartland.
It has a mobile pantry that delivers food free of charge directly to people who are in need of assistance. With the school year coming to an end, this is an excellent time for us to help support the food bank since many students rely on the school meal programs.” George’s favorite sub is the #43 Chipotle Cheese Steak.
Marcotte and George share Jersey Mike’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and 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 Jeff Marcotte’s sixth Jersey Mike’s location. His first Jersey Mike’s opened in Lincoln in December 2012. Other stores are located in Bellevue and Papillion.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
