Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, officially opened its doors in City of Industry on December 18. Franchise owner Gary Bates held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 18 to Sunday, December 22 to support the City of Industry Sheriff’s Station Youth Activities League (YAL).
To commemorate the event, the new restaurant, located at 18200 Gale Avenue, hosted a 5-day fundraiser with proceeds supporting YAL. Anyone who had a fundraising coupon received a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution. Five 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.
Bates 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 was the high quality product and friendly atmosphere at Jersey Mike’s that sparked my interest in franchising with this brand,” said Bates. “As we open our doors in Industry, we are looking forward to serving many customers who live and work in the area. As a part of our grand opening we will be hosting a fundraiser for the Youth Activity League. The programs and services provided by the Youth Activity League are vital for shaping the lives of at-risk youth.”
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 first Jersey Mike’s location for Bates.
