June 27, 2016 // Franchising.com // Jacksonville, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Jacksonville on June 22. Franchise owner Michael Phillips, along with operating partner Chris Causey, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 22 to Sunday, July 3 to support Wolfson Children's Hospital.
The new restaurant, located in the Winn-Dixie Center at 10915 Baymeadows Road, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Wolfson Children's Hospital.
“We look forward to bringing another Jersey Mike’s Subs location to a part of town that was screaming for more food options,” said Phillips. “Once again we have teamed up with Wolfson Children’s Hospital to help out the families in the region that support our locations on a daily basis.”
Phillips is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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 (904) 265-2040.
