June 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // Boise, ID - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Boise on June 1. Franchise owners Boris Ilic, Laurie Ilic, Alexander Ilic, and Tanya Ilic held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 1 to Sunday, June 5 to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 7610 W. State Street, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“We are very excited to bring the first Jersey Mike’s to Idaho,” said Laurie Ilic. “As we continue to grow the Jersey Mike’s brand, we have the opportunity to increase awareness for local organizations and charities. Opening our doors in the Boise community will allow us to maintain our tradition of caring for our neighbors while serving our authentic sub sandwiches.”
The Ilics 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 (208) 853-2350.
