SOUTH BEND, Ind., Jan. 13, 2020 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in South Bend on January 15. Franchise owners Michael Guros and Lori Kuiphoff held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 15 to Sunday, January 19 to support Habitat for Humanity of St. Joseph County.
The new restaurant, located at 315 W. Ireland Road, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Habitat for Humanity of St. Joseph County.
“Lori and I are so excited to be opening our second store in South Bend,” said Michael Guros. “Jersey Mike’s commitment to the community and the quality of its products are the main reasons we chose to work with the brand. For our grand opening, we are partnering with Habitat for Humanity of St. Joseph County, and look forward to continuing to serve the community with great subs and service. Looking for a great hot sub? Try the #56 The Big Kahuna; it’s my favorite.”
Guros and Kuiphoff 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 $41 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
