Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, opened its fourth in Tallahassee restaurant on April 3. Franchise owners Kimberly and Angelo Crowell held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 3 to Sunday, April 14 to support Florida State University Schools.
The new restaurant, located address 1970 Gainesborough Drive, circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Florida State University Schools. Half of these 5,000 coupons will be valid through April 7, with the other half being valid through April 14. Additional offers will also be available in the Tallahassee Democrat.
In addition, Jersey Mike’s will be hosting a State of Florida Employee Appreciation Day on April 3. All State of Florida employees are invited to visit the new location and will be offered a free sub for a minimum $1 donation to Florida State University Schools. All state employees must show valid identification.
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.
The Crowells 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.
“It has always been important to us to serve our local community, and Jersey Mike’s has given us the fantastic opportunity to do so with this grand opening,” said Kimberly Crowell. “We are excited to partner with Florida State University Schools and to be a part of the Southwood 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 fifth Jersey Mike’s location for the Crowells. In November 2010, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location at 1801 West Tennessee Street in Tallahassee. The Crowells went on to open two additional locations in Tallahassee, as well as a location in Gainesville.
