Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Irvine on April 3. Franchise owners Hector and Jennifer Haget held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 3 to Sunday, April 7 to support Boys and Girls Club of Irvine.
The new restaurant, located at 17917 MacArthur Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Boys and Girls Club of Irvine.
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.
Hector and Jennifer Haget 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 more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“For our grand opening fundraiser we are excited to be partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Irvine,” said Hector Haget. “It is really wonderful to work with such an established organization that provides so much support to our local youth. The entire team at the Boys and Girls Club, including branch director, Ernest Johnson, has been incredibly welcoming to us in Irvine. Jennifer and I are grateful for this opportunity to make a difference for so many children in our local area.”
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 6th Jersey Mike’s location for the Hagets. In January 2008, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Lake Forest, CA. The Hagets also own Jersey Mike’s locations in Mission Viejo, Orange, Tustin, and Foothill Ranch.
