March 22, 2016 // Franchising.com // Rochelle Park, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Rochelle Park on March 16. Franchise owners Chris Rigassio and Philip Nisbet held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 16 to Sunday, March 20 to support Easter Seals.
The new restaurant, located at 60 Essex St., circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Easter Seals.
“We are glad to be working with Easter Seals and to be a part of such a great community here in Rochelle Park” said Rigassio. “This is our fourth store between Phil and me, and the first of five in the area. We are excited to continue to grow the brand in Northern N.J. and to continue to give back to our communities.”
Rigassio and Nisbet 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.
