Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Abingdon Location
ABINGDON, Va., Jan. 24, 2020 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open at 133 Cook Street in Abingdon on January 29.
Franchise owners David and Elizabeth Wampler held a grand opening and fundraiser from Wednesday, January 29 to Sunday, February 2 to support Kirk Edward Nairn Memorial Scholarship Foundation. Customers with a special fundraising coupon may make a minimum $2 contribution to the charity in exchange for a regular sub.
“We are so excited to finally open our first Jersey Mike’s in Abingdon,” said David Wampler. “For the past 18 years, our Abingdon customers have had to drive to one of our stores in Bristol to experience the great tasting subs and exceptional customer service for which Jersey Mike’s is famous. Abingdon customers have wanted Jersey Mike’s in their wonderful town for many years and we are so happy that now we can be a part of such a great and historical community.”
The Wamplers 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 more than $41 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. In 2019, the company’s 9th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $7.3 million for more than 200 charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 2,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s Fastest-growing Sandwich Chain in the 2019 Nation’s Restaurant News Top 200, and #1 Most Admired Fast-casual Brand in QSR’s 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards.
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. Jersey Mike’s turkey breast, ham, prosciuttini, and cappacuolo are all antibiotic free. Udi’s gluten free bread is also now available.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 276-525-8157.
