August 07, 2017 // Franchising.com // WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Williamsport on August 2. Franchise owners Matt and Kristie Patterson, along with operating partner Cody Shaffer, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 2 to Sunday, August 6 to support United Way of Lycoming County.
The new restaurant, located at 201 Basin Street, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to United Way of Lycoming County.
“I started working for Matt and Kristie when they opened their Lewisburg location,” said Shaffer. “I worked my way up to become a general manager and today I have earned the opportunity to become an operating partner. The Williamsport community is the perfect fit to open Jersey Mike’s and we look forward to introducing our customers to our authentic sub sandwiches. We are excited to be partnering with the United Way of Lycoming County to support an organization that continually supports the members of our community.”
The Pattersons and Shaffer share Jersey Mike’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $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. This year, Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2017 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 570-980-9312.
