ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 11, 2017 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Albuquerque on October 18. Franchise owners Thomas McCollum and Jeffrey McCollum, along with operating partner Shane Jones, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, October 18 to Sunday, October 22 to support La Cueva Booster Club.
The new restaurant, located at 6400 Holly Avenue, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to La Cueva Booster Club.
“Tom and I are proud to support La Cueva Booster Club during our grand opening,” said Jeffrey McCollum. “We are proud to be associated with Jersey Mike’s as they not only offer a high-quality product, but also a great corporate culture. At this new location, we will have a drive thru service available which we are really excited to have for our customers.”
The McCollums 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 $25 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 7th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $5.5 million for nearly 150 charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. This year, Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2017 Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100.
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 (505) 355-5702.
