November 22, 2016 // Franchising.com // Bannockburn, IL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Bannockburn on November 16. Franchise owner Kevin Cavanaugh held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 16 to Sunday, November 20 to support the Deerfield High School winter sports teams.
The new restaurant, located at 2565 Waukegan Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the Deerfield High School athletic department.
“We are excited to bring the Jersey Mike’s brand to the Deerfield/Bannockburn community,” said Cavanaugh. “We look forward to working with Deerfield High School and any local business that wants to bring our high-quality sandwiches to the students, employees, children, and residents of the area.”
Cavanaugh is a disabled Marine Corps veteran who has partnered with Jersey Mike’s to open stores that employ as many veterans as possible. Including Cavanaugh, the Bannockburn store will have at least 4 employees who are war-time veterans. Cavanaugh is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner 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 (847) 607-9889.
