KEARNY, N.J., Jan. 10, 2018 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Kearny on January 17. Franchise owner and Marine Corps veteran Tim Jensen held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 17 to Sunday, January 21 to support Kearny High School.
The new restaurant, located at 190 Passaic Ave., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Kearny High School.
"At Jersey Mike's our fundraising partnerships create a layer of sustainability for schools, youth sports leagues, and other nonprofits in our area,” said Jensen. “These partnerships allow us to truly become members of our community by allowing us to contribute to the success of our youth and town. We are thankful for the opportunity and honestly feel that we are changing the world one sub at a time."
Jensen is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is 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.
To recognize those making a difference in local communities, Jersey Mike’s is seeking nominations for five $5,000 Sub Abover Grants. From now through January 19, 2018, go to BeASubAbove.com to nominate an individual who is making a difference. As a reward, Jersey Mike’s will send you a coupon good for $2 off any sub. Grants will be awarded in February 2018.
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.
