Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened a new location in Carlsbad on October 30. Franchise owners Joe and Susan Weir held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 30 to Sunday, November 3 to support Carlsbad Educational Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 2521 Palomar Airport Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Carlsbad Educational Foundation.
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 Weirs 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.
“Partnering with the Carlsbad Education Foundation gives us the opportunity to raise money for our education system which is currently underfunded,” said Joe Weir. “When given the opportunity to give back, I believe the best place to start is with children. A great education is so important for shaping the lives of young people. When we first joined the Jersey Mike’s family in 2011, we did so because this company has such a commitment to giving back and providing a quality product. These two things really resonated with me then, and still do today. As a business owner, I am grateful for the chance to make a positive impact for others.”
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 the Weirs. They opened their first Jersey Mike’s in Encinitas in September 2011 and own an additional location in Carlsbad which opened earlier this year.
