August 21, 2017 // Franchising.com // HILLSBORO, Ore. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Hillsboro on August 16. Franchise owner Zack Heikkala held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 16 to Sunday, August 20 to support Hillsboro School Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 2515 SE Tualatin Valley Hwy., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Hillsboro School Foundation.
“We are excited to be opening our second Hillsboro store,” said Heikkala. “As a brand, Jersey Mike’s truly believes in serving a quality product and experience while making a difference for our customers and community. In fact, our grand opening will include a 5-day fundraiser benefiting the Hillsboro School Foundation. As a business owner, my goal is to give back by supporting local programs and organizations that make a positive impact for the youth in the communities we serve.”
Heikkala 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 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. 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.
