Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in Lewisville on December 18. Franchise owner Basil Hito held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 18 to Sunday, December 29 to support We Got Next and The Colony High School.
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 4770 State Highway 121, hosted a 12-day fundraiser with proceeds supporting We Got Next and The Colony High School. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution. Ten thousand coupons were distributed throughout the community.
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.
Hito 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.
“Having worked in the restaurant industry since I was 16, opening my own franchise has always been a lifelong dream of mine,” said Hito. “When it came down to finding which concept would work best for me and my family, Jersey Mike’s was ultimately the perfect fit. Everything about Jersey Mike’s from the company culture right down to the authentic product was right in line with my own values and expectations. I think that the grand opening fundraiser really speaks to the exceptional culture of giving at Jersey Mike’s. For the first twelve days that we are open, we will be raising money for We Got Next and The Colony High School to help fund education and support enrichment programs for our local youth. We can’t wait to open our doors on December 11 and we invite the entire community to take part in the Jersey Mike’s experience.”
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 Hito’s first Jersey Mike’s location.
