December 06, 2016 // Franchising.com // Los Angeles, CA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Los Angeles on November 30. Franchise owner Juancarlos Chacon held a grand opening and fundraiser from Wednesday, November 30 to Sunday, December 11 to support John Marshall High School, Thomas Starr King Middle School, and Allesandro Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 2664 Griffith Park Blvd., circulated thousands of flyers throughout the community each containing various offers. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $2 donation to the participating charities from November 30 to December 11 as part of a 12-day grand opening celebration.
“I was initially attracted to Jersey Mike’s because of the quality of the product and the people in the company,” said Chacon. “For this grand opening, we have partnered up with three local schools. We want to help create more after school programs for the students in our community. After school programs keep kids safe, promote physical activities, inspire learning and help working families. We look forward to seeing everyone there!” Prior to becoming a Jersey Mike’s franchisee, Chacon worked in the restaurant business for 15 years and was an owner for 6 of those years.
Chacon 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 (323) 522-6727.
