Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Springfield on April 19. Franchise owner Craig Rankin held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 19 to Sunday, April 23 to support Child Advocacy Center.
The new restaurant, located at 1008 East Battlefield Rd., circulated over 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Child Advocacy Center.
“I am so excited to be opening our second Springfield location,” said Mr. Rankin. “For our grand opening, we partnered with Child Advocacy Center. We are thrilled to be bringing a new location to Springfield and also to give back to the community.”
Mr. Rankin 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 $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 (417) 882-2474.
