BARSTOW, Calif., Jan. 17, 2018 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Barstow on January 24. Franchise owner Adam Shamel held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 24 to Sunday, January 28 to support Barstow Unified School District.
The new restaurant, located at 2843 Lenwood Road, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Barstow Unified School District. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
“Jersey Mike’s is hands down the best tasting sub sandwich I’ve ever had,” said Shamel. “In fact, everything about Jersey Mike’s is exceptional. As a business owner I was really attracted to this brand because it offers a business model and level of customer service that I can really stand behind.”
Shamel added, “I am so grateful for this opportunity to bring Jersey Mike’s to the high desert area. As a company we are committed to making a difference in our local communities and we will continue this tradition with our grand opening fundraiser. For the first five days that we are open, we will be raising money for the Barstow Unified School District. We look forward to seeing everyone at the opening!”
