Jersey Mike’s celebrates Del Mar opening with fundraiser for education


Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Del Mar on Feb. 25, and franchise owners Cathy and Mike Brown are holding a grand opening fundraiser through Sunday, March 1, to support the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation.

The new restaurant, at 2626 Del Mar Heights Road, is circulating 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 contribution to the foundation. There will also be special fliers distributed to the community schools, each containing various offers. For each school flier coupon redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will make a $3 donation to the foundation. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.

“We are excited to be opening a Jersey Mike’s store in our own community and to support the local schools during our grand opening fundraiser,” said Cathy. “Having lived in the area for nearly 30 years, we feel a special local connection and look forward to being a positive asset to the Del Mar and Carmel Valley area for many years to come.”

The Browns have been residents of the Del Mar area since 1987, and their three children attended local schools. They 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 $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. Jersey Mike’s franchisees nationwide are gearing up for the 5th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March. Last year, $2.1 million was raised for more than 100 different charities nationwide.

Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The company was named the #1 fastest growing chain in the Nation’s Restaurant News 2014 Top 100 and continues to win best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.

This is the eighth Jersey Mike’s location for the Browns. In August 2009, they opened their first Jersey Mike’s at 8590 Rio San Diego Drive in Mission Valley. The Browns also own Jersey Mike’s locations in San Diego, Santa Clara, and Mountain View. The Del Mar restaurant will be managed by Chris Richey. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
