June 19, 2017 // Franchising.com // Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Chatham on June 14. Operating Partner Patrick Fiorino held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 14 to Sunday, June 18 to support Madison Athletics & Madison Little League.
The new restaurant, located at 641 Shunpike Road in Hickory Square Plaza, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Madison Athletics & Madison Little League.
“It was the atmosphere that initially attracted me to Jersey Mike’s,” said Fiorino. “I love getting to banter with our customers while making their subs and making a positive difference in their day.” Fiorino started at the Parsippany Jersey Mike’s back in 2015, went onto work at the Roxbury location, and was then given the opportunity to help open this store in Chatham.
“For this opening, we are supporting the Madison Athletics and Madison Little League,” he said. “We are committed to helping the young people of this community in the long-term and are looking forward to seeing everyone at our grand opening!” Fiorino’s favorite sub is the #13 Original Italian, a must try.
Fiorino is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s operating partner 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 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (973) 710-0731.
