September 22, 2015 // Franchising.com // Mountain Brook, AL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Mountain Brook on September 16. Franchise owner Patrick Decker, along with operating partner Justin Williams, held a grand opening fundraiser from Wednesday, September 16 to Sunday, September 20 to raise money for Vestavia Hills City Schools Foundation and Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 3150 Overton Road, circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community with various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $2 donation to be split between Vestavia Hills City Schools Foundation and Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation.
“Opening a Jersey Mike’s in Mountain Brook has been a personal goal since becoming a franchise owner in 2005,” said Decker. “My wife grew up in this community and we are now raising our children here. We are excited to bring this exceptional brand into our neighborhood. During our grand opening fundraiser we are partnering with the local school foundations to support these influential organizations that help our community thrive.”
Decker 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 (205) 518-5292.
