Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Oak Harbor Location
April 23, 2018 // Franchising.com // OAK HARBOR, Wash. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Oak Harbor on April 18. Franchise owners OS1 (SW) Jaime Rivera USN Retired and his wife Norma Rivera held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 18 to Sunday, April 22 to support Coupeville High School.
The new restaurant, located at 31595 SR20, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Coupeville High School. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
“In the mid-eighties, when I was in the military, we used to go to a sub chain all the time and I knew during that time, that one day I would be a franchisee,” said Jaime Rivera. “The first time I had Jersey Mike’s was in Kent, Wash. The crew was friendly and I knew this was the franchise company to go with. My wife has been extremely supportive of my decision and we have been married for 36 years. For this grand opening, we will be helping support Coupeville High School, which is where two of our five grandchildren attend school. Everyone at this school is friendly and very outgoing. We look forward to seeing everyone at our opening and helping support a great school.” Jaime’s favorite subs are the #6 Famous Road Beef and Provolone and the #9 Club Supreme. Norma’s favorite subs are the #8 Club Sub and the #10 Tuna Fish. All of them are a must try!
