March 09, 2016 // Franchising.com // Columbia, TN - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Columbia on March 2. Franchise owner Jon Newton held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 2 to Sunday, March 6 to support The Family Center.
The new restaurant, located at 1202 South James Campbell Blvd., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to The Family Center.
“We are looking forward to bringing back the Jersey Mike’s brand to the Columbia community,” said Newton. “We are partnering with The Family Center during our grand opening celebration to shed light on the hard work the organization does. With each customer we are able to serve our authentic sub sandwiches that are freshly sliced right in front of them and we cannot wait to share that experience with them.”
Newton is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner 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. 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (931) 548-2828.
