Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in San Diego on June 18. Franchise owner Christy Paul, along with her partner Mike Baker, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 18 to Sunday, June 22 to support the YMCA.
The new restaurant, located at 9211 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the YMCA.
“We’re grateful for the opportunity to develop the Jersey Mike’s brand in San Diego,” said Paul. “As we open our second location, the metaphor of our growing family keeps coming to mind. When we opened our first shop in 2011, our first child was just born and now shortly after the birth of our second child, we are opening our doors yet again. It’s been interesting to see the similarities between the two ways in which our lives are expanding and what it takes to be successful as we grow.”
Paul added, “It is tradition at Jersey Mike’s to partner with a local organization for a grand opening fundraiser. We’re teamed up with the YMCA because we feel it’s important to support community programs that are geared toward children. Additionally, the YMCA is so close to our new location and we’re hoping that this is just the beginning of a long-lasting community partnership.”
Paul 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 Paul’s second Jersey Mike’s location. She opened her first Jersey Mike’s location in San Diego in March 2011.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (858) 279-9211.
