October 24, 2013 • Madison Heights, MI
MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, will officially open its doors in Madison Heights on October 23. Franchise owners Robert Middleton, Bill Biga, and Carl Chandler will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 23 to Sunday, October 27 to support Bishop Foley High School Athletics and Lamphere High School Athletic Booster.
The new restaurant, located at 40 East 14 Mile Road, will circulate 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Bishop Foley High School Athletics or Lamphere High School Athletic Booster. Customers must present a valid coupon to redeem this offer.
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.
Middleton, Biga, and Chandler 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.
“My partners and I are very excited about bringing another Jersey Mike’s Subs to Michigan, especially the wonderful city of Madison Heights,” said Middleton. “With this new location we will be raising money for two school programs, Lamphere High School Athletic Booster Club and Bishop Foley High School Athletics. It feels great to have this opportunity to give back to the community and support these wonderful schools.”
Chandler added, “This location is extra special for me because this store will be managed by my son Adam Chandler. Adam is a Michigan State graduate with a degree in Restaurant Hospitality and has been training for over a year to be able to bring the real Jersey Mike’s experience to this location.”
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 the 4th Jersey Mike’s location for Middleton, Biga, and Chandler. In September 2012, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Shelby Township. Middleton, Biga, and Chandler are the owners of additional locations in Rochester Hills and Farmington Hills.
Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (248) 588-5088.
