East Coast Sub Sensation Opens First Location In Easley

Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs

February 29, 2012 • Easly, SC

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, will officially open its doors in Easley on March 7.  Franchise owner Jeffrey Cunningham will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., March 7 to Sun., March 11 to support Easley High School. 

The new restaurant, located at 125 Rolling Hills Circle, will circulate 10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Easley High School.

Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s continued its steady growth in 2011 opening 69 new restaurants throughout the country, a 15 percent increase overall.  The popular sub shop wins best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.

Jeffrey Cunningham exemplifies Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects 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.  In 2011, locations throughout the country raised more than $2 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 100,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“We thought the opportunity to partner with an organization during our grand opening was a great way to give back to the community we serve,” said Cunningham. “By supporting the students of Easley High School, our team hopes to promote their ultimate mission--to cultivate each student’s full potential through challenging, innovative educational programs.” 

Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature blend of olive oil, red wine vinegar and spices.  Unlike its pre-sliced competition, the company uses only private labeled meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh for each sub sandwich and piled high on in-store baked bread.  Everything is quickly made to order for each customer, just the way the first subs were made at the original Jersey Mike's more than fifty years ago.  The Jersey Mike’s experience always includes its trademark neighborly banter served up by a high-energy Jersey Mike’s team. 

This is the first Jersey Mike’s location for Jeffrey Cunningham.  He looks forward to providing the city of Easley with the finest product and friendliest service. 

Restaurant hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this restaurant directly at (864) 855-9444.
