Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in San Luis Obispo on February 10.  Franchise owner Dan Burrell and Angel Velazquez held a grand opening and is hosting a free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, Feb. 10 to Sunday, Feb. 14 to support the American Cancer Society.

The new restaurant, located at 3940 Broad St., is circulating 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the American Cancer Society. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.

“We are thrilled to be opening our doors in San Luis Obispo on February 3,” Burrell said. “We can’t think of a greater cause to support than the American Cancer Society and we look forward to continuing those partnerships throughout the community. If you haven’t donated to the American Cancer Society in the past, now is the perfect time.”

Burrell and Velazquez are exemplary 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 $14 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. In 2015, the company’s 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $3 million for 150 local charities throughout the country.

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 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 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 805-439-1234. This will be the 12th Jersey Mike’s location for Burrell and Velazquez.  In September 2003, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s location in Camarillo, CA and went on to open another location in Ventura in 2004. Burrell and Velazquez also own Jersey Mike’s locations in Ojai, Oxnard, Westlake Village, Newbury Park, Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande, Thousand Oaks, and Paso Robles.

Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 1,500 locations open and under development nationwide, believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same. Jersey Mike’s offers A Sub Above, serving authentic fresh sliced subs on freshly baked bread – the same recipe it started with in 1956 – and is passionate about giving back to its local communities.
