June 12, 2017 // Franchising.com // Crestwood, IL - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Crestwood on June 7. Franchise owner Mac Shimmon held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 7 to Sunday, June 11 to support Park Lawn, Shepard High School and the Crestwood Fire Department.
The new restaurant, located at 13422 South Cicero Avenue, circulated over 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Park Lawn, Shepard High School and the Crestwood Fire Department.
“We are so thrilled to be opening a new location here in Crestwood,” said Shimmon. “For our grand opening we have partnered with three local charities. This is the best opportunity to bring our fresh, authentic product to a new town while still being able to give back to the community.”
Shimmon is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised $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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (708) 690-2252.
