February 13, 2017 // Franchising.com // Augusta, GA - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Augusta on February 8. Franchise owner Eric Clark held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 8 to Sunday, February 12 to support Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation (SFBF).
The new restaurant, located at 4103 Madeline Dr., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation.
“We are so excited to open another Jersey Mike’s in the Augusta area and to provide more convenience for our faithful Jersey Mike’s customers,” said Clark. “This location will be just outside the main gate of Fort Gordon, allowing so many of our military to experience ‘The Juice.’"
Clark added, “During our grand opening, we will be promoting and raising money for our local charity, Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation. SFBF does so much for burn victims and their families who are staying in this area and being treated at one of the largest burn centers in the country, Joseph M. Still Burn Center. It has been an honor to contribute to SFBF for the last six years. Our Jersey Mike’s customers are to thank for that, they have always supported our efforts.”
Clark is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares 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. In 2016, 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 762-333-8410.
