Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Livonia on December 7. Franchise owner Peter Shipman held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, December 7 to Sunday, December 11 to support Stevenson High School Athletics and Holmes Middle School.
The new restaurant, located at 37294 Six Mile Road, circulated coupons to the schools and area businesses throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Stevenson High School Athletics and Holmes Middle School.
“I grew up playing little league hockey in Southeast Michigan and have great memories playing in Livonia,” Shipman said. “We are excited to bring Jersey Mike’s Subs here and look forward to raising money for the local schools during our grand opening.”
Shipman is a 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 nearly $18 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $4 million for 180 charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In 2016, for the third year in a row, the company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100, and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
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.
Shipman also owns and operates Jersey Mike’s stores in Canton, Pittsfield Twp., and Ann Arbor.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (734) 779-5022.
