July 30, 2015 // Franchising.com // Covington, GA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Covington on July 22. Franchise owner Chris Brown, along with operator Jessica Brown, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 22 to Sunday, July 26 to support The Covington Family YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 10333A Industrial Blvd., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to The Covington Family YMCA.
“When we first looked at opening a Jersey Mike’s in Covington we were impressed by this community’s growing industry, welcoming people and friendly business climate,” said Chris Brown. “For our grand opening celebration we are supporting The Covington Family YMCA which creates important programs for our youth. We believe these programs are vital to the success of today’s youth. We were so impressed with the YMCA that we have committed to matching the amount we raise during our grand opening fundraiser!”
Brown is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner 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
