July 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // Miami, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Miami on July 22. Operating partner Pablo Jimenez held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 22 to Sunday, July 26 to support March of Dimes.
The new restaurant, located at 10141 W. Flagler St. in Fountain Square Shopping Center, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to March of Dimes.
“I couldn’t be happier to be part of such a great team, taking a leap into the Miami area,” said Jimenez. “Jersey Mike’s has presented an opportunity for me that I just could not resist; have fun, lead a great team, give to give and make awesome subs while you’re at it! Giving to give is so fundamental for us; this is how I knew that it is where I belong. Whether it is joining our local charity partner March of Dimes, raising funds for every mother and child to have an opportunity to build a family; or participating in our communities providing career opportunities and unparalleled guest service. I am very eager to spread the Jersey Mike’s love and share with everyone a wonderful experience. You just won’t be the same after you’ve experienced Jersey Mike’s.”
Jimenez is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partner 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. 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
