October 02, 2017 // Franchising.com // BLUE BELL, Pa. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Blue Bell on September 27. Operating Partner Cierra Pollock held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 27 to Sunday, October 1 to support the Wissahickon Athletic Departments.
The new restaurant, located at 960 Dekalb Pike, is circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the Wissahickon Athletic Departments.
“When I was 16 years old, I started at the Jersey Mike’s in Coral Springs, Florida,” said Pollock. “It was the staff at that store that attracted me to Jersey Mike’s. Since then, I was given the exciting opportunity to help with opening stores in Pennsylvania. We noticed that the community was really supportive of the Wissahickon Athletic Departments and decided to partner up with them for our grand opening fundraiser. We look forward to seeing everyone at our opening and helping support a great cause!” Pollock’s favorite sub is the #6 Roast Beef and Provolone, a must try!
