Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Louisiana Location
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Hammond on June 28. Franchise owner Robert J. Tedesco held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 28 to July 2 to support St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Hammond High School and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
The new restaurant, located at 1823B SW Railroad Ave., circulated over 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to St. Thomas Aquinas High School, Hammond High School and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
“We are so honored to have been selected by Jersey Mike’s Leadership Team to open the first Jersey Mike’s franchise in the state of Louisiana,” said Tedesco. “We are beyond excited to open our new restaurant in Hammond and look forward to making a positive impact in our communities and the neighborhoods that we serve. It is our responsibility as a brand to give for the sole purpose of giving, and not to receive.”
Tedesco 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 $25 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 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 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.
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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (985) 542-1956.
