Jersey Mike's Subs Opens Third Des Moines Location

DES MOINES, Iowa, Jan. 15, 2020 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened a Drive-Thru location in Des Moines on January 22. Franchise owner Scott Miller held a grand opening celebration and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, January 22 to Sunday, January 26 to support the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Iowa.

The new restaurant, located at 2809 E. University Ave., circulated 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Iowa. 

“We are excited to bring our authentic, fresh-sliced and grilled sub sandwiches to the east side of Des Moines,” Miller said. “At Jersey Mike’s we strive to be a ‘sub above’ in everything we do. Our team is passionate and we look forward to sharing the Jersey Mike’s culture and food with our guests.

 “Jersey Mike’s is dedicated to giving back and supporting our communities,” he said. “I have partnered with the Make-a-Wish Foundation for this grand opening celebration and proceeds will help grant the wishes of children in Iowa who are suffering from critical illnesses. If you haven’t tried Jersey Mike’s before, now is your chance to enjoy great food while making a difference in a child’s life.”
