March 15, 2016 // Franchising.com // Maplewood, MN - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Maplewood on March 9. Franchise owner Bart Crockett and General Manager Chris Holt held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 9 to Sunday, March 13 to support North High School, John Glen Middle School and Richardson Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 2645 White Bear Ave. North, circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to North High School, John Glen Middle School and Richardson Elementary School.
“I am so excited to open my newest location here in Maplewood,” said Crockett. “This is our third location and it has been a great opportunity to make a difference by supporting our community. We’re very excited to be serving the authentic Jersey Mike’s experience to this town.”
Crockett 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.
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 651-493-8363.
