December 17, 2015 // Franchising.com // UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open its doors in Mohegan Sun’s Casino of the Sky Valet entrance on Thursday, December 17, 2015. This will be the third Jersey Mike’s location in Connecticut opened by Mohegan Restaurant (JM Subs), LLC, a business diversification entity of Mohegan Holding Company, LLC, of the Mohegan Tribe.
In February 2015, Jersey Mike’s awarded 10 restaurants in New England to Mohegan Restaurant and, in April, the company awarded two additional locations. The awarded territory covers Connecticut, Rhode Island and the southern section of Worcester County in Massachusetts. The first of the Tribe’s Jersey Mike’s locations opened in Meriden, Conn., in August, followed by another in Norwich in October. The Tribe is also committed to opening a total of 24 Smashburger and 14 Arooga’s locations between the three states.
The Tribe established Mohegan Holding Company, LLC, for business diversification in non-gaming areas, and now includes interests in franchise restaurants, sustainable energy resources and manufacturing, and office digital solutions.
The Mohegan Tribe 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 $14 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 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.
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 11am to 10pm Sunday through Thursday and 11am to midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Mohegan Tribe was founded on the banks of southeastern Connecticut’s Thames River by Chief Uncas in the early 17th century. After its federal recognition in 1994, the Tribe established its own sovereign government within the state of Connecticut, and opened the world class casino resort Mohegan Sun on its reservation land in 1996. It has created The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority (MTGA) to oversee its gaming properties which now include Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre, PA and Atlantic City Resorts in Atlantic City, NJ. The nine- member Tribal Council serves as the leadership for the sovereign nation, and also serves as the Board of Directors for MTGA. The Mohegan Holding Company, LLC was created by the Tribe for business diversification in non-gaming areas, and now includes interests in franchise restaurants, sustainable energy resources and manufacturing, and office digital solutions.
Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 1,500 locations open and under development nationwide, believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same.
