PFLUGERVILLE, Texas, Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened in Pflugerville on September 11. Franchise owners Jason Odom and Chris Cho held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 11 to Sunday, September 15 to support the Boys and Girls Club of the Austin Area.
The new restaurant, located at 1608 Town Center Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Boys and Girls Club of the Austin Area.
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.
Odom and Cho 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 almost $7 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“We chose to come on board with Jersey Mike’s because of the genuine people behind the brand,” said Odom. “After meeting with Jersey Mike’s President, Hoyt Jones and the Vice President of Franchise Development, Brian Sommers, we were sold on becoming a part of this company. Both Hoyt and Brian showed such a passion and excitement for this company that we knew Jersey Mike’s was the right choice.
“To add to that, the culture of giving back to the local community is something that is at the forefront of what Jersey Mike’s does and has always been important to me as a business owner. For our grand opening fundraiser we have teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club to give back to our local youth. We plan on continuing to impact our community throughout the year through different fundraisers and events to benefit local organizations,” Odom said.
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.
This is the first Jersey Mike’s location for Odom and Cho.
