SAN DIEGO – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in San Diego on August 28. Franchise owner Frederick Downey held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 28 to Sunday, September 1 to support Valley Center Youth Soccer.
The new restaurant, located at 6545 Mission Gorge Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Valley Center Youth Soccer.
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.
Downey 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. Since 2010, locations throughout the country have raised almost $7 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“This grand opening in San Diego gives us the chance to serve a different part of the city while giving back the community,” said Downey. “We have partnered up with Valley Center Youth Soccer to help raise money so that children from low income families can afford to play on a soccer team. As a soccer coach, I know how valuable and formative the team experience can be for many children. Through our grand opening fundraiser, we can help ensure that each child is given this same opportunity to participate regardless of their socioeconomic status.”
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature olive oil blend, 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.
