Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
October 17, 2012 • Orlando, FL
ORLANDO, Fla. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, opened its sixth Orlando location on September 26. Franchise owners Raul and Lisa Ceide held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 26 to Sunday, October 7 to support Hunters Creek Elementary and West Creek Elementary Schools.
The new restaurant, located at 13651 Hunters Oak Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Hunters Creek Elementary and West Creek Elementary Schools. Half of these 10,000 coupons will be valid through September 30 with the other half being valid through October 7. Additional offers were also be available in the Orlando Sentinel and through direct mailings to the 8,500 residences within the Hunters Creek community.
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.
Raul and Lisa Ceide 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.
“Hunters Creek is recognized nationally for its residents’ involvement in their children’s educational and social welfare,” said Raul Ceide. “Lisa and I both felt that sponsoring the two local elementary schools during our grand opening would let our new neighbors know that Jersey Mike’s Subs is committed to making a difference in the communities that we serve. We look forward to maintaining an active partnership with all of the local schools and helping them achieve their goals and aspirations for our children.”
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 third Jersey Mike’s location for Raul and Lisa Ceide. The Ceides joined the Jersey Mike’s team in July 2011, when they purchased an existing location at the Shoppes at Windsor Oaks in Orlando. In November 2011, they went on to open an additional location on West Sand Lake Road, also in Orlando.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at 407-440-6492.
