Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open in Hixson on Wednesday. Franchise owners Ryan Hendrix and Andrew Brooks, along with manager Jacob Lewis, will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday to Sunday, Sept. 28, to support Hixson Elementary School.
The new restaurant, at 5510 Highway 153, is circulating 3,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Hixson Elementary School. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
“We’re looking forward to opening our next Jersey Mike’s location here in Hixson,” said Mr. Hendrix. “We love the tight-knit vibe of this community and we feel it will be a great fit for Jersey Mike’s.”
Mr. Hendrix added, “As we open our doors on Sept. 24, we are proud to support Hixson Elementary School. At Jersey Mike’s we have a tradition of giving back to our communities and we welcome this opportunity to make a difference for one of our local schools. We plan to continue our community involvement by partnering with a variety of local organizations in the coming months and years.”
Mr. Hendrix and Mr. Brooks are 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 $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 the second Jersey Mike’s location for the Mr. Hendrix and Mr. Brooks. In June they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Chattanooga.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this location directly at 423 321-8145.
