Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Middleton next week. Franchise owner Mark Michalak held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, February 15 to Sunday, February 19 to support Middleton High School, Kromrey Middle School and Elm Lawn Elementary.
The new restaurant, located at 1601 Deming Way, circulated over 15,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Middleton High School, Kromrey Middle School and Elm Lawn Elementary.
“I am so excited to be bringing the Jersey Mike’s experience to Middleton,” said Michalak. “We look forward to providing our customers with a high-quality product, superior customer service and an overall enjoyable dining experience. Each Jersey Mike’s grand opening is an opportunity to give back to the community through a five-day opening fundraiser and we are fortunate enough to be able to team up with some of the local schools for Middleton.”
Michalak 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 $20 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. In 2016, 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.
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 seventh restaurant for Michalak. He opened his first store in 2010 in Lake in the Hills, Illinois, and has five other open locations in Crystal Lake, Bloomingdale, Lake Zurich, Hoffman Estates, and Wheaton. He has won the “Business Journals Best Under 40 Award” and other awards for regional excellence for his fundraising efforts and for consistently giving back to the community.
