July 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // Sherwood, OR - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Sherwood on July 22. Franchise owners Joseph and Cathleen Karcher, along with District Manager Beth Teske, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 22 to Sunday, July 26 to support Sherwood Regional Family YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 21155 S.W. Baler Way, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Sherwood Regional Family YMCA.
“The charity we decided to partner up with is the hub of this community,” said Joseph Karcher. “A lot of people in the community are members of the YMCA and we are proud to help support a good cause. We are very excited to be opening our first store in Sherwood and looking forward to serving our customers for many years to come,” he said.
The Karchers and Teske all agreed that the #13 The Original Italian is their favorite sub, a must try!

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.
