November 13, 2017 // Franchising.com // YUMA, Ariz. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Yuma on November 8. Franchise owners Sameh Samaan and Wahid Karas, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 8 to Sunday, November 12 to support Amberly's Place, Desert Mesa Elementary School & Mary A Otondo Coyotes PTO.
The new restaurant, located at 11231 E. Commercial Center Loop, Suite 101, circulated thousands of coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Amberly's Place, Desert Mesa Elementary School & Mary A Otondo Coyotes PTO.
“We are proud to support these local charities during our grand opening fundraiser,” said Samaan. “This is our first location in Arizona and it is a great opportunity to make a difference and help support our community. We’re very excited to be serving the authentic Jersey Mike’s experience here in Yuma.”
Samaan and Karas are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who share the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are 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.
