March 15, 2016 // Franchising.com // Vestavia Hills, AL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Vestavia Hills on March 9. Franchise owner Patrick Decker held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 9 to Sunday, March 6 to support The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorder at Children’s of Alabama.
The new restaurant, located at 1031 Montgomery Hwy, circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorder at Children’s of Alabama.
“We have the opportunity to open our newest location in Vestavia Hills during our annual Month of Giving,” said Decker. “We decided to take this opportunity to celebrate our month-long charity partner during our grand opening. Children’s helps so many families in the area and we are so grateful to be one of their supporters. We look forward to welcoming you opening day and cannot wait to share the final donation amount raised at the end of the month.”
All March long, franchisees throughout the nation are celebrating the 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving. The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 30, when 100 percent of the day’s sales – every single dollar – is donated to the local partner charity. Last year, $3 million was raised for 150 different charities nationwide.
Decker 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.
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 (205) 978-9600.
