Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Jacksonville on June 4. Franchise owner Ryan McLaughlin held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 4 to Sunday, June 15 to support Creeks Athletic Association.
The new restaurant, located at 12795 San Jose Boulevard, circulated 12,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Creeks Athletic Association. Funds will be divided between the Pop Warner CFL Outlaws football/cheer and Creeks Soccer.
“Over the past several years, Jersey Mike’s has had the opportunity to gain a solid customer base here in Jacksonville,” said McLaughlin. “By popular demand, we are excited to be open our doors in Julington Creek and serve another part of this city. This grand opening also gives us an occasion to give back to our community in a unique way through our grand opening fundraiser. We have teamed up with the Creeks Athletic Association to raise funds in support of their sports programs and make a difference for youth sports.”
McLaughlin is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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 McLaughlin’s fourth Jersey Mike’s location in Jacksonville.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (904) 329-2095.
