Jersey Mike's Opens Fifth Location in Chicago
Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
February 27, 2013 • Chicago. IL
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, opened its fifth Chicago location on February 27. Franchise owners Jeff Herter and Bobby Singh hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 27 to Sunday, March 3 to support South Loop Elementary School and Jones College Prep.
The new restaurant, located at 26 E. Roosevelt Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to South Loop Elementary School and Jones College Prep. Half of these 10,000 coupons will be designated for donations to South Loop Elementary School and half will be designated for donations to Jones College Prep.
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. Jeff Herter and Bobby Singh 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. 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.
“For our grand opening fundraiser we wanted to find a way to give back to Chicago schools which is why we are partnering with South Loop Elementary School and Jones College Prep” said Bobby Singh. “We look forward to supporting our local students as we open our doors in this great location in the heart of South Loop.”
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 second Jersey Mike’s location for Jeff Herter and Bobby Singh. In February 2012, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location at 203 E. Ohio Street in Chicago.
