March 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // La Puente, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in La Puente on March 2. Franchise owner Gary Bates held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 2 to Sunday, March 6 to support Delhaven Community Center.
The new restaurant, located at 1281 North Hacienda Blvd., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Delhaven Community Center.
“It was the high quality product and friendly atmosphere at Jersey Mike’s that sparked my interest in franchising with this brand,” said Bates. “As we open our doors in La Puente, we are looking forward to serving many customers who live and work in the area.”
Bates is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who 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. 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.
This is Bates’ second Jersey Mike’s location. In December 2013, he opened his first store in City of Industry. The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (626) 918-0500.
