March 07, 2016 // Franchising.com // Webster, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Webster on March 2. Franchise owners Jim Mellon, Scott Irvine and Ed McCaffrey, along with operating partners Cole Fulkerson and Bobby Campbell, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 2 to Sunday, March 6 to support Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD).
The new restaurant, located at 933 W. Bay Area Blvd., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to CADD.
“We are proud to bring Jersey Mike’s Subs to Webster,” said Fulkerson. “Now opening our fifth location is absolutely a blessing for us and our community. We have been able to give back to several local charitable organizations and with another location on the map we’ll be able to do more. For our Webster location, Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities will be our charitable recipient for the grand opening.”
Mellon, Irvine and McCaffrey 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. All March long, franchisees throughout the nation are celebrating the 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving. Last year, $3 million was raised for 150 different charities nationwide.
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.
