July 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // West Caldwell, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in West Caldwell on July 22. Franchise owners John Helm and Matt Catania held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, July 22 to Sunday, July 26 to support West Essex High School PTO and James Caldwell High School HSA.
The new restaurant, located at 775 Bloomfield Ave., circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community with various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $2 donation to West Essex High School PTO and James Caldwell High School HSA.
“We have been looking at West Caldwell for a while because it is such a community-oriented town,” said Catania. “That is a perfect fit with Jersey Mike’s culture which is all about giving back, and we are excited about getting to know our new neighbors."
Helm and Catania 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
