Jersey Mike's Opens 1st Location in Mountain View
Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs
July 11, 2013 • Mountain View, CA
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Mountain View on July 10. Franchise owner Cathy Brown held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 10 to Sunday, July 21 to support Community School of Music and Arts.
The new restaurant, located at 634 San Antonio Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Community School of Music and Arts. Of the coupons distributed, 7,500 were valid from July 10 through July 14, with the remaining 2,500 being valid from July 15 through July 21.
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.
“We received such a warm welcome at our Santa Clara location when we opened just a few weeks ago,” said Brown. “Opening this next location in Northern California gives us yet another opportunity to give back to the community by partnering with the Community School of Music and Arts. The school provides musical and art education programs for people of all ages and abilities. Through our grand opening fundraiser we hope to make a difference by supporting programs that foster creativity and inspire the school’s many students. ”
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and 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.
This is the 7th Jersey Mike’s location for Cathy Brown. In August 2009, she opened her first Jersey Mike’s location at 8590 Rio San Diego Drive in San Diego. Brown also owns four additional locations in San Diego. Most recently, Brown opened a Jersey Mike’s location in Santa Clara in June.
