Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Santee on November 13. Franchise owner Ray Ibrahim held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 13 to Sunday, November 17 to support the Santee School District Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 9331 Mission Gorge Road, circulated 12,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Santee School District 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.
Ibrahim 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.
“In early October I opened my first Jersey Mike’s location in El Cajon. All of the buzz and excitement was so much fun that I can’t wait to do it all over again in Santee,” said Ibrahim. “This time we will be raising money to benefit the Santee School District Foundation to give back to the students in our 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.
This is Ibrahim’s second Jersey Mike’s location. In October of this year, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s in El Cajon.
