Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in North Charleston on November 13. Franchise owner Ryan Delman and his team held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 13 to Sunday, November 17 to support Fort Dorchester Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 9500 Dorchester Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Fort Dorchester Elementary 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.
Delman exemplifies 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.
“It has been exciting to watch Jersey Mike’s grow in the Charleston area,” Delman said. “By the end of 2013 we will have 11 Jersey Mike’s locations open here which is a big jump from six years ago when we had just three.
“With every grand opening we have the unique opportunity to support a local cause. This time around we will be raising money for Fort Dorchester Elementary School. Giving back to children and supporting their education is the best way we can think of to become involved in the community and we can’t wait to open our doors on November 13,” he 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.
