Jersey Mike's Opens First Coral Springs Location
City To Match Donations at Grand Opening Free Sub Fundraiser
July 29, 2013 • Coral Springs, FL
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Coral Springs on July 17. Store operator Scott Coleman will held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 17 to Sunday, July 21 to support Coral Springs Community Chest.
The new restaurant, located at 4230 North State Road 7, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub in exchange for a generous donation to Coral Springs Community Chest.
A 501 (c) (3) organization, Coral Springs Community Chest was founded in 1988 on the premise that community resources should provide for community needs. There is no paid staff so 98% of the funds raised are reinvested back into the community. Over the years, Coral Springs Community Chest has funded more than one million dollars to non-profit organizations that have services and programs benefitting Coral Springs residents.
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.
“At Jersey Mike’s our commitment to high quality and freshness is unparalleled,” said area director Greg McMenaman. “We take great care in the preparation of our product which includes fresh slicing our produce, meats, and cheeses and grilling cheesesteaks to order. We are thankful for this opportunity to bring our product to Coral Springs and we look forward to meeting many new customers during our grand opening celebration.”
Hillary Hutchinson, Jersey Mike’s regional marketing manager for the area added, “The Coral Springs Community Chest is a great organization that raises money for over 25 local non-profits. To help bolster the funding of these non profits, the city of Coral Springs pledges to match any donation made to the Community Chest. So, for every dollar that Jersey Mike’s is able to raise during our grand opening fundraiser, the city will match it! The Community Chest then disperses funds to the different charities based on their program needs and financial needs. We are excited to open our doors and support the great work that the Community Chest does for all of Coral Springs.”
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature olive oil blend, 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.
