December 15, 2015 // Franchising.com // Port Charlotte, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Port Charlotte on December 9. Operating partners John Enterline and Dylan Duncan held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 9 to Sunday, December 13 to support Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
The new restaurant, located in Shoppes of Port Charlotte at 1804 Tamiami Trail, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
“We have been looking forward to opening our doors in Port Charlotte,” said Enterline. “Jersey Mike’s was my first job back in high school and I never imagined it would be my career path. Not only have I been able to grow within the company and become an operating partner, but also have been able to help fill specific needs within communities through our giving back mentality. We took this grand opening as an opportunity to partner with Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. We look forward to supporting this organization that helps local families and introduce our authentic sub sandwiches to the Port Charlotte community.”
Enterline and Duncan are exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partners 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (941) 979-5176.
