Jersey Mike's Subs Opens First Olive Branch Location
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Olive Branch on May 17. Franchise owners Jeff Hoover, Mary Ellen Cunningham and Jim Shipman, held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, May 17 to Sunday, May 21 to support Olive Branch High School, Desoto Central High School, and Lewisburg High School.
The new restaurant, located at 6518 Goodman Road, circulated 9,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Olive Branch High School, Desoto Central High School, and Lewisburg High School.
“We are thrilled to be opening the first Jersey Mike’s in Mississippi, here in Olive Branch,” said Hoover. “For our grand opening, we have partnered with some of the local schools. This is great way for us to give back to the locals, and bring our authentic, great subs to this community.”
Hoover, Cunningham and Shipman 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 $25 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This 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. 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 (662) 932-2425.
