SCHERERVILLE, Ind. – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Schererville on December 5. Franchise owner Raul Padilla held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 5 to Sunday, December 9 to support Highland High School Athletics and Lake Central High School Athletics.
The new restaurant, located at 37 U.S. Highway 41, circulated 10,500 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Highland High School Athletics and Lake Central High School Athletics.
Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s continued its steady growth in 2011 opening 69 new restaurants throughout the country, a 15 percent increase overall. The popular sub shop wins best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
Raul Padilla exemplifies 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. In 2011, locations throughout the country raised more than $2 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 200,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“Jersey Mike’s commitment to giving back, really resonated with me as a business owner,” said Raul Padilla. “Partnering with Highland High School and Lake Central High School for this grand opening fundraiser is a great way to make a difference and support the students in this community.”
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature blend of olive oil, red wine 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 first Jersey Mike’s location for Raul Padilla.
