Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in South Riding on November 6. Franchise owners Greg Switaj and Stephen Switaj held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 6 to Sunday, November 10 to support Freedom High School and John Champe High School.
The new restaurant, located at 25360 Eastern Marketplace Plaza, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Freedom High School or John Champe High School.
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 Switaj brothers 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.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community,” said Greg Switaj. “This grand opening fundraiser has given me an opportunity to partner with Freedom High School and John Champe High School. Having the ability to team up with two local schools is so rewarding and I am looking forward to Jersey Mike’s becoming an integral part of the South Riding community.”
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.
