Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Suffolk Location
Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
December 5, 2013 • Suffolk, VA
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Suffolk on December 4. Franchise owners Martin Anderson and Clark Stallings along with manager Michael Stemler held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 4 to Sunday, December 8 to support Northern Shores Elementary and the USO of Hampton Roads.
The new restaurant, located at 6216 College Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Northern Shores Elementary and the USO of Hampton Roads. Customers presented the fundraising coupon to participate.
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.
Anderson, Stallings and Stemler exemplify Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects franchise owners and managers 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.
“Suffolk is a very tight-knit and well connected community which makes it the perfect home for Jersey Mike’s,” said Stemler. “At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to a philosophy which began years ago with our founder and CEO, Peter Cancro. Peter’s vision, to make a difference in every community we serve, is something that is evident by our grand opening fundraiser. For the first five days we are open we will be benefitting Northern Shores Elementary and the USO of Hampton Roads to give back to the youth and military that live in our immediate area. We believe it is so important to support the education of our youth and of course give back to military personnel who have already given so much for our nation.”
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.
