Jersey Mike’s Subs Raises Funds For Local Schools At Grand Opening

Owners Celebrate with Free Subs

Jersey Mike’s Subs opened its second store in Bakersfield.  Jersey Mike’s owners Stacy Knight and Carrie Asbury know the importance of community relations and celebrated their new ties with the area during their grand opening on April 27.  

To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 5120 Stockdale Highway, hosted a 5-day fundraiser from Wed., April 27 through Sun., May 1, with proceeds supporting the West High School and California State University Bakersfield Athletics.  Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular size sub with a minimum $1 contribution.  More than 5,000 coupons were distributed throughout the community.

“We believe in supporting the development of students in our community,” said Knight.  “West High School and CSUB Athletics are great institutions and we look forward to joining them to help area students reach their full potential.” 

“Time after time Stacy and Carrie have shown how to run a successful business,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO.  “Certainly, the key to that success has been their passion for education and a willingness to support the community.   We congratulate Stacy and Carrie on opening their second Jersey Mike’s Subs location.”

"This is a great time for Jersey Mike's in Bakersfield," said Asbury.  "People here love the authentic Northeast-style sub and the old-fashioned deli vibe including the banter and the sense of community.  We like to get to know the first names of all our regular customers. Paying attention to these small details along with our superior quality product is the recipe for our success." 

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at 661-716-2711.
