Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Santa Maria on April 12. Franchise owners Dan Burrell and Angel Velazquez held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 12 to Sunday, April 16 to support Orcutt Unified School District.
The new restaurant, located at 1140 E. Clark Avenue, circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Orcutt Unified School District.
“We are thrilled to be opening our doors in Santa Maria on April 12,” said Velazquez. “We can’t think of a greater cause to support than the local schools and we look forward to continuing those partnerships throughout the community. If you haven’t donated to the Orcutt Unified School District in the past, now is the perfect time.”
Burrell and Velazquez 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 nearly $25 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
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.
This will be the 13th Jersey Mike’s location for Burrell and Velazquez. In September 2003, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Camarillo, CA and went on to open another location in Ventura in 2004. Burrell and Velazquez also own Jersey Mike’s locations in Ojai, Oxnard, Westlake Village, Newbury Park, Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande, Thousand Oaks, Paso Robles, and San Luis Obispo.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (805) 934-1124.
