October 21, 2015 // Franchising.com // Tempe, AZ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Tempe on October 14. Franchise owners Alicia Rosenfield and Duane Layton, held a grand opening and fundraiser from Wednesday, October 14 to Friday, October 23 to support Tempe School District.
The new restaurant, located at 1537 W. Broadway Rd., at the intersection of 55th St and Broadway, circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community offering various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $2 donation to the participating schools from October 14 to October 23.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community,” said Layton. “The ten day grand opening fundraiser gives us a perfect opportunity to give back to the local schools. Everyone here has been so welcoming to us and we are excited to build and grow alongside such a great community.” Rosenfield & Layton have set a personal goal to raise $5,000 for the Tempe schools during this fundraiser.
Rosenfield and Layton are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners and operators 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.
This is the ninth Jersey Mike’s location for Alicia Rosenfield and Duane Layton. In March 2011, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s in Chandler. They also own Jersey Mike’s locations in Phoenix, Laveen, Scottsdale, and Maricopa.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (480) 921-4101.
