May 23, 2016 // Franchising.com // Temple, TX - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Temple on May 18. Franchise owners Jim Mellon, Scott Irvine and Ed McCaffrey, along with operating partner Bobby Campbell, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 18 to Sunday, May 22 to support the Ralph Wilson Youth Club.
The new restaurant, located at 7425 W. Adams Ave., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the Ralph Wilson Youth Club.
“It’s an honor to bring Jersey Mike's to our home city,” said Dr. Irvine. “It also provides us an opportunity to help support a worthwhile organization like the Ralph Wilson Youth Club.”
Mellon, Irvine and McCaffrey 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 (254) 295-0039.
