Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Scottsdale on June 18. Franchise operators Alicia Rosenfield and Duane Layton held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 18 to Sunday, June 22 to support Pima Elementary School.
The new restaurant, located at 7919 East Thomas Road, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Pima Elementary School.
“At Jersey Mike’s we are committed to making a difference in the community,” said Layton. “By supporting the local elementary school we are funding essential student programs and activities.”
Layton added, “This will be the sixth Jersey Mike’s location in the valley for our franchise group, and the 18th location in Arizona. The brand is hitting a growth spurt in the area and we’re happy to be part of the expansion in Scottsdale.”
Rosenfield and Layton are exemplary Jersey Mike’s restaurant operators 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (480) 247-7544.
