Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First New Braunfels Location
Owners Celebrate Grand Opening with Free Subs
January 24, 2014 • New Braunfels, TX
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened in New Braunfels on January 22. Franchise owners Chris Cho and Jason Odom held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 22 to Sunday, January 26 to support the New Braunfels Family YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 1691 State Highway 46 West, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the New Braunfels Family YMCA.
“Chris and I just love the energy and excitement of this brand,” said Odom. “We have had a blast since opening our first store in Pflugerville and we can’t wait to bring Jersey Mike’s to New Braunfels.”
Cho added, “New Braunfels is both Jason’s and my hometown, so opening a Jersey Mike’s here means the world to us. We are so excited for this opportunity to give back to a community that helped shape who we are today. Supporting the New Braunfels Family YMCA for our grand opening is especially meaningful as members of the Y and as fans of their programs and services.”
Cho and Odom are exemplary Jersey Mike’s 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, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $7.5 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 600,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who 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, 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 nearly 60 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 Cho and Odom. In September 2013, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Pflugerville.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 830-387-4610.
