May 08, 2017 // Franchising.com // Champions Gate, FL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Champions Gate on May 3. Franchise owners Raul and Lisa Ceide held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 3 to Sunday, May 7 to support the Green Bag Project.
The new restaurant, located at 8258 Champions Gate Blvd., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Green Bag Project.
“Raul and I look forward to bringing the authentic Jersey Mike’s Sub sandwiches to the Championsgate/Four Corners community,” said Lisa Ceide. “During our grand opening fundraiser, we will be partnering with the Green Bag Project which is an incredible organization that provides food packs for local children on a weekly basis to make sure that they are getting the nutrition that they need in order to excel in school and everyday life. We look forward to sharing the Jersey Mike’s experience and getting our customers addicted to the juice.”
The Ceides 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 $25 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 7th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $5.5 million for nearly 150 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.
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.
