East Coast Sub Sensation Opened First Location In Bowie

Owners Celebrated Grand Opening with Free Subs

August 7, 2012 • Bowie, MD

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Bowie on August 1.  Franchise owners Spencer and Christina Bryant held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., Aug. 1 to Sun., Aug. 5 to support the Bowie Boys and Girls Club. 

The new restaurant, located at 6844 Race Track Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Bowie Boys and Girls Club.  

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.

Spencer and Christina Bryant exemplify 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 200,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“The passion for community involvement at Jersey Mike’s is what sets the brand apart,” said Spencer Bryant.  “I found this same passion for giving back at the Boys and Girls Club of Bowie.  Their commitment to the well-being of children made it a perfect partnership for my grand opening fundraiser.  In addition, I am excited as a business owner for the chance to work with young adults and teach them about running a business.  I think it is important to be a positive mentor for our youth and I look forward to the opportunity to work with young people to help them be successful.” 

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.  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 the Bryants.  

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (301) 262-0505.
