Jersey Mike’s Subs Opening On Ocoee Street In Cleveland

Saturday, March 5, 2016
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open in Cleveland on Wednesday. Franchise owner Ryan Hendrix will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday to Sunday to support the Ocoee Middle School PTO.

The new restaurant, located at 2416 N Ocoee St., is circulating 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to Ocoee Middle School PTO. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible. 

“We are thrilled to be opening our newest location in Cleveland,” said Mr. Hendrix. “With every grand opening we partner with a local organization to raise funds and help spread the word about our opening. It was a natural fit to partner with the Ocoee Middle School PTO since they are able to allocate the funds to the programs where the school needs them most. We are also excited to share the Jersey Mike’s experience with our customers and look forward to seeing many new faces on March 9.

Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $14 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. All March long, franchisees throughout the nation are celebrating the 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving.

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 restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.  You can contact this location directly at (423)790-7844.
