Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Slidell Location
SLIDELL, LA., Jan. 24, 2018– Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Slidell on January 24. Franchise owners Robert and Caroline Tedesco held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 31 to Sunday, February 4 to support Slidell High School Athletic Department.
The new restaurant, located at 1290 Front Street, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Slidell High School.
“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to bring Jersey Mike’s Subs to the community of Slidell,” said Robert Tedesco. “At Jersey Mike’s, our culture is to give back to the communities we serve. We have partnered with Slidell High to raise funds for the student athletes at our local high school. Our goal is to make a positive difference in the communities and neighborhoods that we serve. It is our responsibility as a brand to give for the sole purpose of giving, and not to receive.”
The Tedescos are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who share the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $28 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. Last 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. Last year, Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2017 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) 707-1586.
