August 18, 2015 // Franchising.com // North Augusta, SC - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in North Augusta on August 12. Franchise owners Eric Clark and Jason Wren, along with area manager Stephen Carter, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 12 to Sunday, August 16 to support Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 1069 Edgefield Road in the Sweetwater Shopping Center, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in our communities,” said Clark. “With each grand opening Jason and I celebrate by partnering with Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation. Our partnership over the years has shown us the direct impact this organization has on the communities it serves. We always look forward to opening a new store to share this organizations story with our new customers.”
Clark and Wren 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
