February 13, 2017 // Franchising.com // Ridgewood, NJ - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Ridgewood on February 8. Franchise owners Bradford Fritts and Steve Korman held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 8 to Sunday, February 12 to support the bell tower at Ridgewood High School.
The new restaurant, located at 305 E Ridgewood Ave, circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the bell tower at Ridgewood High School.
“I look forward to bringing the authentic Jersey Mike’s sub sandwiches to the Ridgewood community, a town I know well” said Fritts. “During our grand opening fundraiser, we will be partnering with Ridgewood High School which not only provides an excellent education to the local youth but is the heart and soul of this town. We are as excited as local residents to finally open our doors and look forward to seeing you all there."
Fritts and Korman 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. 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.
