First Delaware Jersey Mike's Subs opens near Midway July 31Free subs for donation to benefit Lewes-Rehoboth Meals on Wheels
Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, will officially open its doors in Rehoboth Beach Wednesday, July 31.
Franchise owner Brad Mouly, along with restaurant operators John Asche and Andrew Jobes, will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from July 31 to Sunday, Aug. 4, to support Meals On Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth. The new restaurant, located at 18598 Coastal Highway, Pelican Square, will circulate 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Meals On Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth.
For more than 40 years, Meals on Wheels of Lewes-Rehoboth has been making sure that homebound seniors living in Eastern Sussex County receive hot, nutritious meals each day. In 2012, more than 111,437 meals were provided by the agency to more than 286 hungry seniors. This tremendous feat could not be accomplished without the loyal support of the community and business partners. Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike's continued its steady growth in 2012, opening 92 new restaurants throughout the country, a 33 percent increase in new store growth over 2011.
Mouly, Asche, and Jobes exemplify Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects franchise owners and restaurant operators 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, locations throughout the country have raised almost $7 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“My decision to open my own Jersey Mike’s came as a result of simply trying the product,” said Mouly. “Jersey Mike’s offers such an exceptional menu and experience that I knew I wanted to be a part of this business. As a part of our grand opening we have teamed up with Meals On Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth to help provide nutritious meals to homebound senior citizens. We are so grateful to open our doors and support a great cause that gives back to people who live locally. Rehoboth Beach will be home to the first Jersey Mike’s location in Delaware and we are so excited to introduce our product and meet new customers."
Passionate Jersey Mike's fans crave their subs made Mike's Way, with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature olive oil blend, vinegar and spices. The company uses only private labeled meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh for each sub sandwich and piled high on in-store baked bread. Everything is quickly made to order for each customer, just the way the first subs were made at the original Jersey Mike's more than 50 years ago. The Jersey Mike’s experience always includes its trademark neighborly banter served up by a high-energy Jersey Mike’s team.
This is the first Jersey Mike’s location for Mouly, Asche, and Jobes.
