October 27, 2015 // Franchising.com // East Lansing, MI - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in East Lansing on October 21. Franchise owner Frank Roye held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 21 to Sunday, October 25 to The American Cancer Society.
The new restaurant, located at 551 E. Grand River Ave., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to The American Cancer Society.
“I am so excited to be a part of this brand and begin serving Jersey Mike’s authentic product and experience to the locals of East Lansing and the students at Michigan State University,” said Roye. “At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community and we are given that opportunity by partnering up with The American Cancer Society supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month”.
Roye is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares 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 (517) 324-9600.
