May 16, 2016 // Franchising.com // Salt Lake City, UT - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Salt Lake City on May 11. Franchise owners Jonathan Clegg, Russell Lee, and Marian Clegg held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 11 to Sunday, May 15 to support The Fisher House.
The new restaurant, located at 1400 South Foothill Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to The Fisher House.
“We are excited to open our first store in Salt Lake City,” said Jonathan Clegg. “This is a great community and our store is very close to the University of Utah.”
Clegg has always wanted to open a franchise store. It was his uncle in Colorado who informed him about the authentic fresh-sliced, premium quality Jersey Mike’s experience. Prior to becoming a franchisee, Clegg was in corporate sales and has a degree in aviation. Clegg’s favorite subs are the #9 Club Supreme and the #13 The Original Italian.
“For our first store opening, we have partnered up with Fisher House,” said Clegg. “This is a great charity that offers military families a place to stay while their loved ones undergo medical treatment. We look forward to seeing everyone at the grand opening to support a great cause.”
The Cleggs and Lee 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 $18 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $4 million for 180 charities throughout the country.
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 (385) 242-7055.
