Restaurant Operator Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Subs
December 18, 2013 • Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Ft. Lauderdale on December 11. Restaurant operator Jordan Doery held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 11 to Sunday, December 15 to support the MS Foundation.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 6308 N. Andrews Avenue, hosted a 5-day fundraiser with proceeds supporting the MS Foundation. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution. Seventy five hundred coupons were distributed throughout the community.
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.
Doery exemplifies Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects operators 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.
“At Jersey Mike’s, we strive to make a difference for every customer that walks through our doors and we accomplish this by providing friendly service and a top quality product,” said Doery. “Since giving back to the community is so important to us, we will be hosting a five day fundraiser to support the MS Foundation. Through the generosity of our customers, we will be able to fund care and support for people with multiple sclerosis and their families.”
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.
