October 21, 2015 // Franchising.com // Raleigh, NC - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Raleigh on October 14. Operating partner Zach Carroll held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 14 to Wednesday, October 21 to support Stough Elementary School PTA, J.W. York Elementary School PTA and Rex Healthcare Foundation.
The new restaurant, located in Old Raleigh Village at 3201 Edwards Mill Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Rex Healthcare Foundation. Additionally, we will be partnering with Stough Elementary School PTA and J.W. York Elementary School PTA for a week long fundraiser following the grand opening.
“I’ve been with Jersey Mike’s for about 8 and half years and managed a few different stores, but I grew up in this part of Raleigh and it is nice to move back to this community,” said Carroll. “It is kind of merging my two homes together; it means a lot to support the local schools and become a part of this community again. The Rex Healthcare Foundation is also a huge supporter of this community and the fact we can support an organization that supports so many families makes this fundraiser very worthwhile.”
Carroll is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partner 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 (984) 202-5627.
