July 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // Bel Air, MD - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Bel Air on July 15. Franchise owners Philip Horn and Donald Bauer held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 15 to Sunday, July 19 to support Cool Kids Campaign.
The new restaurant, located at 573 Baltimore Pike, circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Cool Kids Campaign.
“Opening a Jersey Mike’s location in Bel Air is a great opportunity for the brand,” said Bauer. “We are looking forward to serving new customers and making a difference in our local community. For the first five days that we are open we are holding a fundraiser to support Cool Kids Campaign. This is a local organization that helps improve the quality of life for pediatric oncology patients and their families. At Jersey Mike’s we believe in making a positive impact in our communities while serving a top quality sub sandwich and that’s exactly what we plan to do here in Bel Air.”
Horn and Bauer 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. In 2015, for the second year in a row, the company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
