B-TOWN BIZ: ‘Jersey Mike’s Subs’ to open with free sub fundraiser Aug. 27
New B-Town business ‘Jersey Mike’s Subs’ – located in the Five Corners shopping area – will open in Burien with a free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, Aug. 27 to Sunday, Aug. 31 to support Discover Burien.
The new restaurant, located at 15830 First Avenue South, is circulating 10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Discover Burien. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
“One taste of a Jersey Mike’s sub and I was hooked,” said Franchise owner Rob Martin. “After learning more about the brand culture and opportunity for growth in Washington, I knew Jersey Mike’s was the right fit for me.”
Martin added, “Our grand opening in Burien will focus around a five-day fundraiser for Discover Burien, a local non-profit that works closely with other charities and non-profits in the area and helps distribute funds to community programs. We’re grateful for this opportunity to bring Jersey Mike’s exceptional product and culture to Burien and we can’t wait to open our doors on August 27.”
Here’s more from a press release:
Martin 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 nearly $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 750,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size. A 2014 Technomic report ranked Jersey Mike’s in the top five fastest-growing restaurant chains with sales above $200 million.
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 is Martin’s first Jersey Mike’s location.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at (206) 294-5125.
