Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, opened its second location in Myrtle Beach on April 17. Franchise owners and brothers Philippe and Jean Saad held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 17 to Sunday, April 21 to support South Strand Helping Hand.
The new restaurant, located at 102-B Loyola Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to South Strand Helping Hand.
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.
Philippe and Jean Saad 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.
“Since Jersey Mike’s is new to Surfside Beach we are hoping to establish a reputation for giving back and helping meet the needs of our community,” said Phillipe Saad. “We chose to partner with the South Strand Helping Hand to acknowledge and show an appreciation for their dedication to assisting the residents of 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 third Jersey Mike’s location for Philippe and Jean Saad. They entered the Jersey Mike’s system in February 2006 when they purchased an existing location in North Myrtle Beach. The Saads went on to open an additional location in Myrtle Beach in July 2008.
