December 12, 2017 // Franchising.com // ISSAQUAH, Wash. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Issaquah on December 6. Franchise owners Ning Jin-Grisaffi and Michael Grisaffi held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 6 to Sunday, December 10 to support Issaquah Schools Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 730 NW Gilman Blvd., circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Issaquah Schools Foundation.
“We have always been big fans of sandwiches, especially Michael,” said Ning. “He was introduced to Jersey Mike’s through a co-worker and was hooked! We fell in love with the subs and then looked into the opportunity to become franchisees. Jersey Mike’s has a big heart and is all about giving back to the community which is something we believe in too. For this grand opening, we will be supporting the Issaquah Schools Foundation and look forward to seeing everyone at the opening!” Ning’s favorite sub is the #9 Club Supreme and Michael’s is the #10 Tuna.
