WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J., Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors at Monmouth University on September 3. Restaurant operators Edward Gomez and Christa Etherington, both from ARAMARK Food and Support Services Group, Inc., distributed free sub coupons to students, staff, and faculty to kick off the grand opening.
The new restaurant will be located in the Rebecca Stafford Student Center at 400 Cedar Avenue.
This new Long Branch location sits just miles away from Jersey Mike’s home office, now headquartered in Manasquan. Started at the Jersey Shore in Point Pleasant in 1956, Jersey Mike's continues its expansion from coast to coast as well as at home.
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.
“Joining this community of Monmouth University students is very exciting for us,” said Gomez. “Our goal is to work with the University to promote its exceptional programs and student body. Jersey Mike’s is a national brand with a local feel here at the Jersey Shore, and we truly believe that being on campus will provide added value for the Monmouth University students. Students will be able to pay with their meal exchange at Jersey Mike’s which should make dining with us easy and affordable for most. ARAMARK is proud to be in collaboration with Jersey Mike’s to bring a quality product to students, staff, and faculty.”
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.
