Jersey Mike's Opens First Vista Location

Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs

December 17, 2012 • Vista, CA

VISTA, Calif., Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Vista on December 12.  Franchise owner Phil Jones held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 12 to Sunday, December 16 to support Rancho Buena Vista High School.

The new restaurant, located at 620 Hacienda Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Rancho Buena Vista 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.

Phil Jones 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 200,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“The culture of giving at Jersey Mike’s really resonated with me as a business owner,” said Phil Jones. “Partnering with Rancho Buena Vista High School is a great opportunity to make a difference in the community and support academic and athletic programs which are so important to students.  There is a great need for funding in education and this grand opening fundraiser is a perfect occasion to help.”

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 Phil Jones.
