January 19, 2016 // Franchising.com // Matawan, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Matawan on January 13. Operating partner Chris Sutton held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 13 to Sunday, January 17 to support Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District.
The new restaurant, located at 251 Main Street, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District.
“The Jersey Mike’s brand has always been a staple in southern Monmouth County and we are looking forward to introducing it to the Matawan community,” said Sutton. “Jersey Mike’s has always been about supporting the local community and we have chosen to partner with the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District as our grand opening charity partner. With our opening we look forward to serving authentic sub sandwiches and getting to know the customers in the Matawan area.”
Sutton is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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 (732) 970-4422.
