Jersey Mike’s Subs To Open Columbia Location

Owners Celebrate with Free Sub Fundraiser

COLUMBIA, S.C., April 11, 2019 – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open in Columbia on April 18. Franchise owners Rodger Blake-ward and Daniel Mustian will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, April 18 to Sunday, April 22 to support Palmetto Children's Hospital.

The new restaurant, located on the USC campus at 650 Lincoln St., is circulating 5,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to Palmetto Children’s Hospital. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.

Blake-ward and Mustian 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 more than $34 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 8th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised over $6 million for more than 170 charities throughout the country.

Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. In 2017, Jersey Mike’s was named the country’s fastest-growing Limited Service Chain and fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2017 Nation’s Restaurant News Top 100.

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 803-728-0609.
