December 19, 2016 // Franchising.com // Edison, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Edison on December 14. Franchise owners Chris Rigassio, Phil Nisbet, John Lovisolo, and John Stathis held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 14 to Sunday, December 18 to support Edison High School.
The new restaurant, located at 1100 Route 1, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Edison High School.
“We are excited to open our group’s sixth location, this one in Edison,” said Rigassio. “For our grand opening, we are partnering with Edison High School, and distributing over 10,000 free sub cards with a $2 donation throughout the community. Growing up as a kid down the shore, eating Jersey Mike’s my whole life, and am now being able to bring my love for the sandwiches into the Central New Jersey area is a dream come true.”
Rigassio, Nisbet, Lovisolo, and Stathis 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 732-515-9881.
