August 11, 2015 // Franchising.com // Fallbrook, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Fallbrook on August 5. Franchise owner Gary Garfine, along with general manager John Hoyt, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 5 to Sunday, August 9 to support Boys & Girls Club of North County.
The new restaurant, located at 833 South Main Street, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Boys & Girls Club of North County.
“I’ve been a general contractor for Jersey Mike’s since 2008,” said Garfine. “While building out the stores in Southern California, I was really attracted to the product and the atmosphere that Jersey Mike’s delivers, which inspired me to have my own store. I was involved in the restaurant business for a short time and really wanted to get back into this environment.” Garfine’s favorite sub is the #43 Chipotle Cheese Steak.
“We will be supporting the Boys & Girls Club of North County for this grand opening,” he said. “When I was a child, I really got into sports because of my local Boys & Girls Club and it’s a wonderful program to have in the community. Everyone here has been so welcoming to us and we are excited to have a Jersey Mike’s Subs in Fallbrook!”
Garfine 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.
