Jersey Mike's Subs Opens At Gateway to L.A.
Owners Celebrate With Free Sub Fundraiser For Bob Hope USO
June 30, 2015 // Franchising.com // Los Angeles, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in the Gateway to L.A. Business District, adjacent to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), on June 24. Franchise owners Arthur Maidman and Garen Khodaverdian, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 24 to Sunday, June 28 to support Bob Hope USO.
The new restaurant, located at 5933 W. Century Blvd., is within walking distance of LAX, just down the LAX/Century Boulevard corridor. The new beautifully patioed eating center is part of LAX Center and lies at the bottom of the district’s newest state of the art high-rise hotel gem -- the Marriott Residence Inn. The hotel and airport plaza provide plenty of free parking for easy-in, easy-out service.
South Bay Los Angeles franchisees, Artie Maidman and Garen Khodaverdian, are happy to have placed the new location at the Gateway to L.A. so they can serve the LAX business district community, travelers, and airport employees.
For the location’s grand opening, Maidman and Khodaverdian circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Bob Hope USO.
“We are so excited to be part of this important community, and in the Jersey Mike’s spirit, we will do all we can to support the special organizations that serve and protect LAX,” said Maidman. The Bob Hope USO provides a safe haven for military travelers and their families when traveling through LAX. As a gateway to world travel, the Bob Hope USO at LAX is one of the most utilized, providing facilities for troops during long layovers and even overnight stays. The Bob Hope USO at LAX is open 24 hours, 7 days a week and is funded by local Southern California business partners and run by the more than 250 volunteers who dedicate their time.
Maidman and Khodaverdian 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.
