November 14, 2016 // Franchising.com // Harrisonburg, VA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Harrisonburg on November 9. Franchise owners Gordon Pannill and Charles Golden held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 9 to Sunday, November 13 to support On The Road Collaborative.
The new restaurant, located at 563 University Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to On The Road Collaborative.
“We look forward to bringing authentic Jersey Mike’s sub sandwiches to the Harrisonburg and JMU communities,” said Golden. “During our grand opening fundraiser we will be partnering with On The Road Collaborative, which is a non-profit youth empowerment organization that sets middle school youth on the road to college and career. We look forward to sharing the Jersey Mike’s experience and continuing the spirit of giving to give.”
Pannill and Golden 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 540-217-2426.
