Jersey Mike’s Opens Aboard Joint Base Little Creek-Fort Story
February 20, 2019 // Franchising.com // NORFOLK, Va. - Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened last week on Thursday, February 14, aboard Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in the Main Navy Exchange food court.
Franchise owners Martin Anderson and Clark Stallings, along with operating partner Tristan Lee, will celebrate with a fundraiser for The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
This is the third location the trio has opened together. Anderson and Stallings own and operate a total of 12 Jersey Mike’s restaurants in the Hampton Roads area, with two others expected to open this spring.
“We are pleased to bring our authentic sub sandwiches to the troops and their families stationed here at Little Creek-Fort Story,” said Phil Capozzi, Vice President, Non-Traditional Development, Jersey Mike's Franchise Systems, Inc. “Jersey Mike’s is now available to three branches of the U.S. military: Army, Navy and Marines.”
In December 2017, Jersey Mike’s opened its first restaurant on a military base at Schofield Barracks in Oahu, Hawaii. In February 2018, Jersey Mike’s opened aboard the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Twentynine Palms, Calif.
The sub shop is staffed by civilians, family members of service members at the installation, and retired military. Store hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
Anderson, Stallings and Lee share Jersey Mike’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and is dedicated to giving back to the local community. 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. In 2018, 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.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 2,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2018 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.
