East Coast Sub Sensation opens in Woodbury

Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs

May 1, 2013 • Woodbury, MN

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Woodbury on April 24.  Franchise owner Brian Risch held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 24 to Sunday, April 28 to support Woodbury Middle School and Woodbury High School.

The new restaurant, located at 7455 Currell Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Woodbury Middle School and Woodbury High School.  Half of these coupons will be designated for donations to the middle school and the other half for the high school.  Students at Woodbury High School will also receive coupons offering 50 percent off a regular sub with minimum $1 donation to their school.

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. 

Brian Risch 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 almost $7 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. 

“Coming on board as a Jersey Mike’s franchise owner has been an encouraging and rewarding experience.  Jersey Mike’s is a fantastic brand to be a part of and I could not be more excited to open our doors,” said Risch.  “Through this grand opening, I have the unique opportunity to support our local students by raising funds for Woodbury Middle School and Woodbury High School.  I have always been passionate about supporting our schools and I cannot think of a better way to give back to my community.”

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 Brian Risch’s first Jersey Mike’s restaurant.
