October 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // Tampa, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Tampa on September 28. Franchise owners Bryan Pagan and James Connolly held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 28 to Sunday, October 9 to support Mary Bryant Elementary School and Westchase Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 9464 W Linebaugh Avenue, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Mary Bryant Elementary School and Westchase Elementary School.
“At Jersey Mike's we are committed to making a difference in the community,” said Connolly. “The grand opening fundraiser gives us a great opportunity to give back to the local schools. During our grand opening fundraiser, we will be partnering with Westchase and Mary Bryant Elementary. We look forward to bringing the authentic Jersey Mike’s sub sandwiches to the Tampa Westchase community.”
Pagan and Connolly 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 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.
