June 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // Redlands, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Redlands on June 17. Franchise owner Jordan Andrian held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 17 to Sunday, June 21 to support Youth Hope Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 1755 E. Lugonia Ave., circulated 12,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Youth Hope Foundation.
“Growing up on the Jersey Shore in Brick, N.J., my mother would always bring home a Club Sub -- the number 8 -- for us to share,” said Andrian. “To this day, the number 8 is still my favorite sandwich! Once my wife, Lacey, and I were married and had our son, Ethan, we thought this would be the perfect business opportunity for a young family. When our Redland store opens, our second son Everette will have just celebrated his first birthday.”
Andrian continued, “For this grand opening, we partnered up with the Youth Hope Foundation. It is a fantastic non-profit organization that helps build confidence and promote self-sufficiency for homeless, runaway, and underserved youth, ages 14-24 by providing trust, hope, support and education. In the 2010-2011 school year, 1,602 homeless youth were registered for 7th to 12th grade in the Redlands Unified School District. Youth Hope Foundation’s mission is to be a support system for these youth so they can grow to be healthy, successful adults that exit street life. We hope to see you all at our grand opening to help support the Youth Hope Foundation.”
Andrian 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 Andrian’s third Jersey Mike’s location. In March 2014, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Yucaipa and this year he went on to open another in Moreno Valley. The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to
9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (909) 794-3957.
