October 21, 2015 // Franchising.com // Columbia, MO - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Columbia on October 14. Franchise owners Sterling and Meghan Sublett held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 14 to Sunday, October 18 to support the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri.
The new restaurant, located at 1101 Grindstone Parkway, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri.
"After 12 years of trying to bring a Jersey Mikes to Columbia, we are extremely excited to finally be rolling the brand out here” said Sublett. “We can’t wait to serve these awesome subs to the Mid-Missouri area. Not a lot of people here know what the brand is yet, but I don't think it will take long for people to find out how fresh our subs are and to embrace our fun culture."
The Subletts 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 (573) 874-0172.
