Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened a new location in Myrtle Beach on May 1. Franchise owners Philippe and Jean Saad held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 1 to Sunday, May 5 to support the American Red Cross.
The new restaurant, located at 2602 N. Kings Highway, will circulate 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the American Red Cross.
As one of the nation’s premier humanitarian organizations, the American Red Cross is dedicated to helping people in need throughout the United States and, in association with other Red Cross networks, throughout the world. They depend on the many generous contributions of time, blood, and money from the American public to support their lifesaving services and programs.
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 Saad brothers 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 $7 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 proud to be supporting the Red Cross,” said Saad. “The Red Cross is an organization that many Americans count on in times of need and we are grateful for this opportunity to partner with them and make a difference. We are looking forward to opening our doors yet again in Myrtle Beach and we invite the rest of the community to come out to try our subs and help us give back to the Red Cross.”
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 fourth Jersey Mike’s location for Philippe Saad 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. In mid April of this year, the Saads opened a Jersey Mike’s location on 102-B Loyola Drive in Myrtle Beach.
