JERSEY MIKE’S SUBS BRINGS TASTE OF JERSEY SHORE TO RECon 2012
Manasquan, New Jersey -
The Jersey Mike’s Subs team will be working overtime at the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) annual RECon conference May 20-23, 2012, in Las Vegas, providing attendees with a genuine Jersey Mike’s experience. At Booth S494Q (located in South Hall 4), the company is recreating a Jersey Mike’s restaurant complete with bantering sub makers -- and most importantly, the slicer. The team will fresh slice sub sandwiches on the spot, planning to serve 30,000 pieces of authentic East Coast-style subs during the show.
Jersey Mike’s is at the event seeking top locations to open new restaurants in markets across the country.
“We welcome everyone to come by and join us for a taste of the Jersey Shore,” said Hoyt Jones, president, Jersey Mike’s. “We look forward to introducing attendees to Jersey Mike’s, a 56-year old proven brand that continues opening new markets as well as expanding in current ones.”
Jersey Mike’s, recently named one of the five franchises you need to invest in by The Street, is continuing its record-setting growth, already opening more than 30 restaurants this year.
Last year, Jersey Mike’s had record unit growth of 15%, opening 69 new restaurants in new and existing markets. In addition, the company awarded 76 new territories, partnering with multi-brand, multi-unit franchisees as well as providing expansion opportunities to existing franchise owners. Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 650 restaurants open and under development nationwide.
Jersey Mike’s wins best sub awards in virtually every market it enters. Passionate fans crave their subs made Mike’s Way™ with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature blend of olive oil, red wine 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 56 years ago. The Jersey Mike’s experience always includes its trademark neighborly banter served up by a high-energy Jersey Mike’s team.
Giving back to the community has always been a guiding principle at Jersey Mike’s. It’s a philosophy that Jersey Mike’s Founder and CEO Peter Cancro (who opened his first store when he was only 17 years old, before he could even legally operate the slicer) has emphasized to each and every Jersey Mike’s store owner: support the community that supports you.
In 2011, locations throughout the country raised more than $2 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 200,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. Most recently, with its generous customers, Jersey Mike’s raised nearly $858,000 for 74 children’s charities across the country as part of its 2nd Annual Month of Giving initiative in March 2012.
