January 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // Lewisburg, PA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Lewisburg on January 6. Franchise owners Matt and Kristie Patterson, along with operating partner Tim Miller, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 6 to Sunday, January 10 to support Evangelical Community Hospital.
The new restaurant, located at 7431 West Branch Hwy., next to the Evangelical Hospital, is circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Evangelical Community Hospital.
“I started working for Matt and Kristie four years ago as a Penn State student,” said Miller. “I worked my way up to become a general manager and today I have earned the opportunity to become an operating partner. The Lewisburg community is the perfect fit to open Jersey Mike’s and we look forward to introducing our customers to our authentic sub sandwiches. We also partnered up with the Evangelical Community Hospital to support an organization that continually supports the members of our community.”
The Pattersons and Miller 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 $14 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. In 2015, 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 (570) 768-4062.
