November 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // Charlottesville, VA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Charlottesville on November 16. Franchise owners Scott Buckner, Ashley Harbour and Manny Castellon held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 16 to Sunday, November 20 to support Albemarle County Fire Rescue and Charlottesville Fire Department.
The new restaurant, located in the 5th St. Station Center at 265 Merchant Walk Avenue, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Albemarle County Fire Rescue and Charlottesville Fire Department.
“We are really excited to be opening our second location in Charlottesville,” said Buckner. “The Charlottesville community has really embraced what the Jersey Mike's brand is all about. During our grand opening fundraiser we will be partnering with Albemarle County Fire Rescue and Charlottesville Fire Department. These are important organizations that support the Charlottesville community and assist in fire prevention. We look forward to sharing the Jersey Mike's experience and getting more customers in Charlottesville addicted to the juice."
Buckner, Harbour and Castellon 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.
