Jersey Mike's Subs Opens Second Aurora Location
October 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // Aurora, CO - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Aurora on September 28. Franchise owners Bob Merullo, Kevin Embree, along with operating partner Pete Cardillo and manager Cody Martin, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 28 to Sunday, October 2 to support Sungate Kids.
The new restaurant, located at 2456 S Parker Road., circulated 7500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Sungate Kids.
SungateKids provides comprehensive investigation support services to victims of child abuse. They are national leaders in providing forensic interviews to child victims of crime. Their goal is to ensure that children are not revictimized by the very system designed to protect them.
“I was introduced to the Jersey Mike’s brand a few years ago and was immediately taken with how much people loved the product,” said Merullo. “The high quality sub sandwich and experience make Jersey Mike’s a great fit for my team. This will be our fourth store; we are excited to keep adding more locations to the area and giving back to the community!”
Merullo and Embree 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.
About Jersey Mike’s
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.
