July 29, 2015 // Franchising.com // League City, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in League City on July 22. Franchise owners Jim Mellon, Ed McCaffrey and Scott Irvine with operating partner, Josh Singletary held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 22 to Sunday, July 26 to support University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities.
The new restaurant, located 2456 Marina Bay Drive, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to CADD.
“I have a very close relative who has been diagnosed with autism” explains Singletary. “While researching autism, I discovered UHCL’s Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities or CADD, and realized I could do something to help those affected by autism.”
Dorthea Lerman, director and UHCL professor of psychology for the Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities added “I am overwhelmed by the generosity of Jersey Mike’s, Carpo and Mr. Singletary. Gifts like these can make a real difference in the services we are able to offer.”
Mellon, McCaffrey and Irvine 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.
This is the third Jersey Mike’s location for Mellon and Irvine and McCaffrey. They also own Jersey Mike’s locations in Killeen and Belton.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at
