East Coast Sensation Opens First Location in West Milwaukee

Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs

February 15, 2013 • West Milwaukee, WI

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in West Milwaukee on February 13.  Franchise owner Tim Murphy held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 13 to Sunday, February 17 to support Pershing Elementary School and West Milwaukee Intermediate School.

The new restaurant, located at 1232 South Miller Park Way, circulated 8,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Pershing Elementary School and West Milwaukee Intermediate School.  Half of the 8,000 coupons will be designated for donations to Pershing Elementary School and the other half will be designated for West Milwaukee Intermediate School.  Additional offers will be circulated through direct mail and flyers. 

Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike's continued its steady growth in 2012 opening 92 new restaurants throughout the country, a 33 percent increase in new store growth over 2011. 

Tim Murphy 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. 

“We are excited to open our doors in West Milwaukee and introduce the Jersey Mike’s brand,” said Murphy.  “We look forward to partnering with Pershing Elementary School and West Milwaukee Intermediate School as we celebrate our grand opening and raise money for local schools.”

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 third Jersey Mike’s location for Tim Murphy.  In September 2010, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Brookfield, Wisc.  Murphy went on to open an additional location in Waukesha in June 2011.
