Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Quakertown on March 8. Franchise owner Gerrit Curran held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, March 8 to Sunday, March 12 to support Quakertown High School.
The new restaurant, located at 260 North West End Blvd., circulated 7,500 throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Quakertown High School.
"We are so excited to be bringing Jersey Mike's to the tight knit community of Quakertown” said Curran. “From the moment we first met with members of Quakertown Community High School, we knew they would be the perfect fundraising partner. There is tremendous enthusiasm and school spirit within this town and we are so fortunate to now call it home.”
Curran 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. This March, franchisees throughout the nation will celebrate the 7th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving. Last year, more than $4 million was raised for local 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 (267) 347-4191.
