East Coast Sensation Opens First DeKalb Location
Owner Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs
October 9, 2013 • DeKalb, IL
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in DeKalb on October 2. Franchise owner Todd Shaw held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 2 to Sunday, October 6 to support the DeKalb Fire Department.
The new restaurant, located at 103 N. Annie Glidden Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the DeKalb Fire Department.
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.
Shaw 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 with Jersey Mike’s has been such a great experience and I’m really looking forward to opening day,” said Shaw. “In addition to serving a top notch product, Jersey Mike’s is committed to giving back to our local communities. For our grand opening in DeKalb, we actually have the opportunity to support the DeKalb Fire Department to help make a difference in our immediate 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 Shaw’s first Jersey Mike’s location.
