East Coast Sub Sensation Opens First Location in Hilton Head
Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs
June 26, 2013 • Hilton Head, SC
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Hilton Head on June 26. Franchise owner Chris Brown will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 26 to Sunday, June 30 to support the Boys and Girls Club of Hilton Head.
The new restaurant, located at 11 Palmetto Bay Road, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Boys and Girls Club of Hilton Head.
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.
Brown 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.
“Partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Hilton Head is a great way for us give back to the community” said Brown. “The Boys and Girls Club is a great resource for the underserved youth in the community who directly benefit from its many programs and events. Through our grand opening fundraiser we will be able to provide assistance for funding summertime activities that are so important to many local children. We look forward to an exciting and busy summer here in Hilton Head and we invite the entire community to join us on June 26.”
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, a signature olive oil blend, 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.
In addition to this new location, Brown is the owner of Jersey Mike’s locations in Bluffton, SC and Statesboro, GA. Brown is also part owner of two locations in Savannah, GA.
