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.
This is the 5th Jersey Mike’s location for Heikkala. In February 2013, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Beaverton and went on to open another in Tulatin later that same year. Heikkala also owns Jersey Mike’s locations in Clackamas and Happy Valley.
