HAVELOCK, N.C., February 5, 2018 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Havelock on February 7. Franchise owners Martin Anderson, Wes Shepherd, and operating partner Robert Davis held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 7 to Sunday, February 11 to support Children’s Miracle Network.
The new restaurant, located at 288 Highway 70 West., circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Children’s Miracle Network.
"After 25 years as a Jersey Mike's franchisee, I continue to get excited to serve a new community each and every time we are given the opportunity to do so,” said Shepherd. “There is nothing better than striving to provide the best product and the best service while, at the same time, giving back to that same community through charity. I remember the very first time that I met our CEO, Peter Cancro, over two decades ago. He was focused on charity and giving back to the community then and still is to this day through new store openings, local charity work, our Month Of Giving, and our Day Of Giving which makes me feel even more excited to be a part of this cause that is much larger than us all."
Shepherd, Anderson, and Davis are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who shares 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 $28 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. Last 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. In 2017, 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.
