WILMINGTON, N.C., July 12, 2017 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened just south of Monkey Junction in Masonboro Commons Shopping Center near Ashley High School on July 19. Franchise owner Joe Christensen held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, July 19 to Sunday, July 23 to support Parks Conservancy of New Hanover County.
The new restaurant, located at 6400 Carolina Beach Rd., circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Parks Conservancy of New Hanover.
Christensen and operating partner, Hunter Trotter Jr., share Jersey Mike’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and are dedicated to giving back to the local community. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $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.
“Jersey Mike's Subs is always great for any occasion,” said Christensen. “Whether it be grabbing lunch with a friend, picking up subs on the way to the beach or catering your school's soccer team, everyone enjoys our fresh and delicious subs. We're excited to be teaming up with Parks Conservancy of New Hanover to raise money and awareness of the importance of our local parks and gardens and keeping them pristine and protected for our future generations to enjoy. We hope our community will come join us for this fundraiser and not only give toward conserving these beautiful areas in our city, but also enjoy the best subs in Wilmington!"
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. This year, Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2017 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 910-769-2352.
