Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Nags Head on April 30. Franchise owners Shaun Hayman and Lynwood P. Evans held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 30 to Sunday, May 4 to support First Flight High School and Manteo High School.
The new restaurant, located at 2424 South Croatan Highway, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to First Flight High School or Manteo High School.
“Lynwood and I both grew up on the Outer Banks so to bring Jersey Mike’s to this area is very exciting,” said Hayman. “Our goal is simple: to deliver the high quality sub sandwich that Jersey Mike’s customers have come to know and love, while upholding a tradition of giving back to the community.
“We’re expecting a fun and busy summer as we welcome many seasonal guests to Nags Head. However, we know it’s also important to support the local population that keeps this community alive year round. To help celebrate our grand opening, we are raising money for First Flight High School and Manteo High School to help fund student programs and give back locally.”
Hayman added, “My family has been in the restaurant business on the Outer Banks for three generations. By opening a Jersey Mike’s in Nags Head, I can ensure that my children will have the same opportunity to enjoy this beautiful part of North Carolina for years to come.”
Hayman and Evans 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 nearly $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 750,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size. A 2014 Technomic report ranked Jersey Mike’s in the top five fastest-growing restaurant chains with sales above $200 million.
The growth is fueled by passionate Jersey Mike’s fans who crave their subs made Mike’s Way® with the freshest vegetables – onions, lettuce and tomatoes – topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice” – red wine vinegar and olive oil blended to perfection. Jersey Mike’s premium meats and cheeses are sliced on the spot, piled high on in-store baked bread and served up with a helping of neighborly banter from a dedicated and high-energy team.
This is the second Jersey Mike’s location for Hayman and Evans. In October 2013, they opened their first location in Elizabeth City.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 252-441-1956.
