Jersey Mike’s: Showing America the Real Jersey Shore
September 20, 2012 • 1851 Franchise Project • By Eileen Meyer
As the likes of Snooki and The Situation have plastered national media and given the shoreline of New Jersey a bad rap, a popular sub shop originating in Point Pleasant is approaching 600 units nationwide, providing sandwich lovers everywhere good food and the positive culture of the Jersey Shore.
Keeping with the Jersey Shore culture, Jersey Mike’s newest franchisee, Bob Middleton, took a trip to the original location in Point Pleasant to experience the authenticity before opening on September 5 in Shelby Township, Michigan. Bob and his partners Carl Chandler and Bill Biga plan to open 19 more locations in Oakland and Macomb Counties in the next 5 years with another location already set to open in Rochester Hills by the end of this year.
“We chose Jersey Mike’s because of its successful business model that allows giving back to the community”, Bob details. “After meeting with Peter Cancro, we immediately saw we shared a deep passion for making a difference in people’s lives.”
