Jersey Mike's Subs Opens Deer Park Location
August 13, 2018 // Franchising.com // DEER PARK, N.Y. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Deer Park on August 8. Franchise owners Marvin Goldfarb, Mitch Cohen, Seth Goldstein and Alvin Goldstein held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 8 to Wednesday, August 15 to support Special Olympics of Long Island.
This is the 3rd Jersey Mike’s location for the long-time Long Island residents. They also own restaurants in Hauppauge and Port Jefferson Station, and plan to open a total of five locations. Pursuing a smart growth strategy, Jersey Mike’s now has 12 locally owned sub shops on Long Island, employing nearly 150 full- and part-time team members. Two more are scheduled to open by the end of the year.
“Interestingly, we are former Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees that are opening the 12th store on Long Island,” said Cohen. “That makes a dozen Jersey Mike’s Subs on Long Island! We look forward to getting to know our new neighbors in Deer Park, and introducing them to our authentic sub sandwiches.”
The new restaurant, located at 512 Commack Rd., circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Special Olympics of Long Island.
Goldfarb, Cohen, and the Goldsteins 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.
The team of former multi-unit Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins franchisees has extensive industry experience. Cohen and Seth Goldstein were recognized by the International Franchise Association (IFA) as Franchisee of the Year (2009), and served in multiple leadership roles for both the IFA and Dunkin’ Brands. Additionally, the duo co-chaired the Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation, which is in alignment with Jersey Mike’s core value of “Giving…making a difference in people’s lives.”
Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $34 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 8th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised over $6 million for more than 170 charities throughout the country. During Month of Giving, the Long Island franchisees raised $35,975 for Long Island Cares, Inc. - The Harry Chapin Food Bank.
