FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Farmington Hills on September 18. Franchise owners Robert Middleton, Bill Biga, and Carl Chandler held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, September 18 to Sunday, September 22 to support the Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Association.
The new restaurant, located at 33220 West 12 Mile Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Association.
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.
Middleton, Biga, and Chandler 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.
“For our newest Jersey Mike’s location we are raising money for the Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Fund,” said Middleton. “We chose to partner with the Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Association because our grand opening date falls so closely to September 11. Twelve years later, as we commemorate this date, we are reminded of the brave men and women who answered the call on that day to protect and serve us. We are so grateful to the men and women in our Police and Fire Departments that we felt a strong desire to give back in this meaningful way.”
Biga added, “The Farmington Hills Benevolent Fund works with the Public Safety Department, the Police and Fire Departments of Farmington Hills, and the Franklin Police Department to raise funds to assist public safely personnel, their families and members of the general public during times of death, illness or personal crisis. We are honored to be associated with these great men and women who serve our communities.”
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 third Jersey Mike’s location for Middleton, Biga, and Chandler. In September 2012, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s in Shelby Township and went on to open an additional location in Rochester Hills in November 2012.
