For Grand Opening Owners Will Support Toys For Tots With “Toys for Subs” Fundraiser
December 10, 2012 • Tallahassee, FL
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Nov. 28, 2012 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, will officially open its doors for a third time in Tallahassee on December 5. Local franchise owners Kimberly and Angelo Crowell will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 5 to Sunday, December 9 to support Toys for Tots.
The new restaurant, located at 3122 Mahan Drive, will circulate 5,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Toys for Tots. Unwrapped new toys will also be accepted in exchange for a free regular sub from December 5 through December 9. Additional offers will also be available in the Tallahassee Democrat.
“We are parents as well as business owners and partnering with Toys for Tots gives us the opportunity to make the holidays cheerful for many children who would otherwise have nothing to open on Christmas morning,” said Kimberly Crowell.
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.
Kimberly and Angelo Crowell 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.
“At Jersey Mike’s, our goal is to give back to Tallahassee year round through fundraising and community events,” Kimberly Crowell said. “However, during the holiday season, we are reminded of how blessed we are and we are reminded of how important it is to help those who are less fortunate.”
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 fourth Jersey Mike’s location for the Crowells. In November 2010, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location on West Tennessee Street in Tallahassee. The Crowells also own an additional location in Tallahassee which opened in May 2011 as well as a location in Gainesville which opened in May 2012.
