Jersey Mike's Opens First Location in Culver City

Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs

January 25, 2013 • Culver City, CA

CULVER CITY, Calif., Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Culver City on January 9.  Franchise owner Alvaro Garcia held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 9 to Sunday, January 13 to support Teen Center of Culver City.

The new restaurant, located at 4114 Sepulveda Boulevard circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Teen Center of Culver City.

The Teen Center of Culver City serves high school and middle school students who live in Culver City or attend a Culver City Unified School.  The Teen Center prides itself on being a positive outlet for youth and teens in Culver City.

Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, the popular sub shop wins best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.

Alvaro Garcia 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.  Since 2010, locations throughout the country have raised more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“This grand opening fundraiser is a great opportunity to make a difference for the youth in our community,” said Garcia.  “At Jersey Mike’s we are passionate about giving back to the communities we serve and this partnership with the Teen Center is a perfect fit for our grand opening.”

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 ninth Jersey Mike’s location for Alvaro Garcia.  In June 2011, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Rancho Cucamonga.  Garcia also owns Jersey Mike’s locations in Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, La Verne, Glendora, Upland, Marina del Rey, and Long Beach.
