November 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // Omaha, NE - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Omaha at West Village Pointe on November 18. Franchise owner Jeff Marcotte and operating partner Gary George, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 18 to Sunday, November 22 to support Elkhorn South High School, Elkhorn High School, Elkhorn Ridge Middle School, and Millard North High School.
The new restaurant, located at West Village Pointe at 203 North 180th St., circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the local schools.
“We are so excited to be bringing another Jersey Mike’s to Omaha” said Marcotte. “We are committed to making a difference in the community and we are able to do that by teaming up with some of the local schools to be able to give back.”
Marcotte is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner 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 (402) 614-1119.
