Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Hillsborough on May 24. The ownership team of Charlie Farris, Griffin Kennedy, Brendan Turk, and Clint Winslow held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 24 to Sunday, May 28 to support Orange High School and Cedar Ridge High School.
The new restaurant, located at 115 Oakdale Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Orange High School or Cedar Ridge High School.
"We're so excited to bring the Jersey Mike's Subs experience to the wonderful Town of Hillsborough,” said Farris. “Patrons of our Chapel Hill locations have been asking for a Jersey Mike's in Hillsborough for years now, and we're just thrilled that we're finally here! High quality public education is near and dear to the hearts of our ownership team, so we feel privileged to be partnering with both Cedar Ridge and Orange High School for our grand opening fundraiser. Please come enjoy a great sub for a great cause!"
