March 13, 2017 // Franchising.com // East Greenwich, RI - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in East Greenwich on March 8th. Franchise owners Mohegan Holding Company, LLC of the Mohegan Tribe celebrated with a fundraiser with East Greenwich Academy Foundation.
The new location at 507-563 Main Street distributed 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub with a minimum $2.00 donation to East Greenwich Academy Foundation.
“We are thrilled to expand the Mohegan Tribe’s Jersey Mike’s footprint to Rhode Island,” said Kevin Brown “Red Eagle,” Chairman of the Mohegan Tribe. “Jersey Mike’s is already well-known in the area for its great subs and dedication to the local community, and we look forward to bringing the success of that business model into East Greenwich.”
This location is the first of the Mohegan Tribe’s Jersey Mike’s restaurants in Rhode Island. Other locations include Meriden, Norwich and Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and Marlborough in Massachusetts, with plans to open seven additional locations in Connecticut, Rhode Island and the southern section of Worcester County in Massachusetts. The Tribe established the Mohegan Holding Company for business diversification in non-gaming areas, and now includes interests in franchise restaurants, sustainable energy resources and manufacturing, and office digital solutions.
