“Paul and I are so excited to be opening our Jersey Mike's in Bristol and becoming a part of this great community,” said McCormack.  “After being a builder for Jersey Mike's for over 15 years I was impressed with the connection that the stores have within their communities.  Their honorable involvement with charity work is impressive and I wanted to become involved with the company on a more personal level.  Paul felt the same way about the company’s values.  Paul has been involved with the restaurant industry for over 25 years and brings a knowledge and expertise that will be beneficial to the business. Both Paul and I are looking forward to building a close relationship with the town of Bristol.”
