March 29, 2016 // Franchising.com // Sunnyvale, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Sunnyvale on March 23. Franchise owners Jeff Henderson and Katie Henderson held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 23 to Sunday, March 27 to support JW House.
The new restaurant, located at 1167 W. El Camino Real, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to JW House.
“I was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the leadership structure and franchise veterans,” said Jeff Henderson. “I love the quality of the product and the authenticity that comes with the brand. We look forward to sharing the Jersey Mike’s experience and getting our customers addicted to the juice.
“During our grand opening fundraiser we will be partnering with JW House which keeps families together during medical crises by offering a welcoming home close to the hospital and providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope,” he said.
The Henderson’s 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (408) 774-9974.
