East Coast Sub Sensation Opens First Hopkins Location
Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
December 5, 2013 • Hopkins, MN
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Hopkins on December 4. Franchise owners Michael McGuire, Joseph Moll, Joe Nachtrab and Luke Nachtrab held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 4 to Sunday, December 8 to support Alice Smith Elementary School, L.H. Tanglen Elementary School, and Benilde-St. Margaret’s School.
The new restaurant, located at 525 Blake Road North, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Alice Smith Elementary School, L.H. Tanglen Elementary School, and Benilde-St. Margaret’s School. 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.
McGuire, Moll and the Nachtrabs 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.
“As a business owner, it has always been important to me to do something I am passionate about,” said McGuire. “The product and experience that Jersey Mike’s has to offer are what motivated me to pursue franchising with this great brand. On top of a great experience, Jersey Mike’s is also committed to making a difference in our local communities. This grand opening in Hopkins has given us the opportunity to work with three local elementary schools to make a positive impact for young students in 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 the second Jersey Mike’s location for McGuire, Moll and the Nachtrabs. In August 2013, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in St. Louis Park.
