Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled Jersey Shore-style subs, opened in Aiken on January 8. Franchise owners Eric Clark and Jason Wren held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 8 to Sunday, January 12 to support the Southeast Firefighters Burn Foundation.
The new restaurant, located at 232 East Gate Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the Southeast Firefighters Burn Foundation.
“We are incredibly grateful for this opportunity to open our doors and support a local organization,” said Clark. “Partnering with the Southeast Firefighters Burn Foundation has been such a rewarding experience so far. The money we raise during our five day grand opening fundraiser, along with our Month of Giving in March, helps people in our own community and victims throughout the United States who come for treatment at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital. Our customers have always been very generous in contributing and helping us do our part to make a difference in the lives of others, and that is what it is all about.”
Clark and Wren are exemplary Jersey Mike’s 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, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more nearly $7.5 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 600,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who 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, 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 nearly 60 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 third Jersey Mike’s location for Clark and Wren. In October 2011 they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Grovetown, Ga. The pair owns an additional location in Martinez, Ga., that opened in April 2013.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (803) 226-0105.
