Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Waco on November 16. Franchise owners Steve and Joy McVean held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, November 16 to Sunday, November 20 to support Pack of Hope.
The new restaurant, located at 720 South 5th Street, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Pack of Hope.
“We are extremely excited to be opening up our second location in Waco,” said Joy McVean. “We take a lot of pride in the Jersey Mike’s brand promise and strive to not only meet, but to exceed those standards for our customers on a daily basis. We understand that customer satisfaction is the deciding factor for helping us to build and maintain loyalty, and it seems to be working. People are not only coming in to taste our subs, they are coming back time and time again.”
The McVeans 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 $18 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 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $4 million for 180 charities throughout the country.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In 2015, for the second year in a row, the company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100, and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.
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 (254) 296-8288.
