Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Oak Lawn on January 18. Franchise owner Mac Shimmon held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 18 to Sunday, January 22 to support Park Lawn, Oak Lawn High School and Richards High School.
The new restaurant, located at 4807 W. 95th Street, circulated 15,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Park Lawn, Oak Lawn High School and Richards High School.
“We are so thrilled to be opening a new location here in Oak Lawn” said Shimmon. “For our grand opening we have partnered with three of the local schools. This is the best opportunity to bring our fresh, authentic product to a new town while still being able to give back to the community.”
Shimmon 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 nearly $18 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, 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.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (708) 581-3370.
