Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Indian Trail on December 4. Franchise owner Rodger Blake-Ward held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 4 to Sunday, December 8 to support Sun Valley High School. This latest opening marks the 25th Jersey Mike’s in the greater Charlotte area.
The new restaurant, located at 6580 Old Monroe Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Sun Valley High School. Customers presented the fundraising coupon to participate.
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.
Blake-Ward 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.
“Every Jersey Mike’s grand opening is an opportunity to give back to the community,” said Blake-Ward. “For the first five days we are open, we will be teaming up with Sun Valley High School. We are hopeful that we can make a great impact for the academic and athletic programs that are essential for our local high school students.”
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 ninth Jersey Mike’s location for Blake-Ward. Blake-Ward is the owner of four Jersey Mike’s locations in Charlotte, two locations in Rock Hill, S.C., one in Cornelius, N.C., and one in Fort Mill, S.C.
