East Coast Sensation Opens 77th Location in Greater L.A. Region
Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
September 9, 2013 • Los Angeles, CA
LOS ANGELES, Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened a new location in Los Angeles on September 4. Franchise owners Adrian Baldieri and Sirag Khorshed held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 4 to Sunday, September 8 to support Variety- The Children’s Charity of Southern California.
The new restaurant, located at 6361 Wilshire Boulevard, circulated 10,000 flyers throughout the community, each containing four coupon offers. For every coupon redeemed during the five day fundraiser, Jersey Mike’s will donate $2 to Variety - The Children’s Charity of Southern California.
Variety- The Children’s Charity is a multi-million dollar philanthropic organization. Starting with a baby left on the doorsteps of a movie theater in 1928, it has continued to be a group of local business men and women, many of whom hail from the theater and movie business, reaching out to children in need. Today, through the efforts of our enthusiastic volunteers and generous corporate contributors, we remain true to our heritage by bringing children real, tangible help.
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.
Baldieri and Khorshed 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 almost $7 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 team up with an organization that is locally focused,” said Baldieri. “By working with Variety we have a great opportunity to give back to children right here in Los Angeles. With each new Jersey Mike’s location we open, not only does our brand grow but our ability to make a difference for our customers continues to grow. Our dedication to giving stems from Peter Cancro, the founder and ceo of Jersey Mike’s. We are not just in business to sell great sandwiches but also to enhance the lives of our customers, employees, and the community.”
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.
This is Baldieri and Khorshed’s second Jersey Mike’s location. In June 2009, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s in Beverly Hills.
