Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Reno Location
Owners Celebrate With Free Sub Fundraiser
October 27, 2015 // Franchising.com // Reno, NV - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Reno on October 21. Franchise owners Mark Antis, and Jeff and Maureen Healy, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 21 to Sunday, October 25 to support Edward L. Pine Middle School.
The new restaurant, located at 4991 S. Virginia Street, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Edward L. Pine Middle School.
“We are excited to be opening our first Jersey Mike’s in Reno,” said Antis. “This is a nice community that is growing fast. I was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the people in the company. Then, I ate my first sub and I was hooked!” Prior to Jersey Mike’s, Antis was an operating director and franchisee for another restaurant chain. “Everyone here has been so welcoming to us and we are excited to build and grow alongside such a great community!”
Antis and Healy 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.
