December 16, 2015 // Franchising.com // Midvale, UT - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Midvale on December 9. Franchise owners Matt Switaj and Steve Switaj, along with operating partner Mike Botelho, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 9 to Sunday, December 13 to support three schools and the Jordan Education Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 7141 South Bingham Junction Blvd., circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Heartland Elementary School, West Jordan Elementary School, West Jordan Middle School and the Jordan Education Foundation.
“I was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the people in the company,” said Matt Switaj. “In 2009, I started working at the Jersey Mike’s stores in Virginia. I was amazed by how passionate the employees are behind the counter. After being in Virginia and graduating from Ohio University, I decided to branch out and bring more Jersey Mike’s to Utah.” Switaj’s favorite sub is the #13 the Original Italian, a must -try.
“For this grand opening, we have partnered up with the local schools and the Jordan Education Foundation. The school administrators are eager to make a difference in their schools programs and we are proud to help support them along the way. We look forward to see everyone at our grand opening!”
The Switaj’s 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 through'out 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 (801) 930-9467.
