July 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // West Palm Beach, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in West Palm Beach on July 6. Operating partner Ashley Alicea held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 6 to Sunday, July 10 to support Autism Speaks.
The new restaurant, located at 1900 Okeechobee Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Autism Speaks.
“I have been working with Jersey Mike’s for almost three years and have grown into the operating partner position,” said Alicea. “The West Palm Beach community is the perfect fit for a Jersey Mike’s because of the brand’s strong community ties. Through our grand opening we will be partnering with Autism Speaks, which is a very important cause to our entire brand. By supporting Autism Speaks we are able to give back to an organization we are passionate about and make great community connections along the way.”
Alicea is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partner 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 2016, for the third 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 (561) 471-8500.
