January 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // Riverside, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Riverside on January 6. Franchise owners Sameh Samaan and Wahid Karas, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 6 to Sunday, January 10 to support Operation Safehouse, Inc., Habitat For Humanity, Feeding America, and Pachappa Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 3540 Riverside Plaza Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Operation Safehouse, Inc., Habitat for Humanity, Feeding America, and Pachappa Elementary School.
“We are proud to support these local charities during our grand opening fundraiser,” said Samaan. “This is our third location in Riverside and it is a great opportunity to make a difference and help support our community. We’re very excited to be serving the authentic Jersey Mike’s experience here in Riverside.”
Samaan and Karas 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 (951) 274-0170.
