Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, opened in Carolina Beach on June 22. Franchise owner Jason Kesler held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 22 to Sunday, June 26 to support the Carolina Beach Elementary School PTO.
The new restaurant, located at 910 N. Lake Park Boulevard, circulated 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $2 donation to the Carolina Beach Elementary School PTO.
“My wife and I live on the island and love the community here. We’re super excited to bring authentic Jersey Mike’s subs to Pleasure Island,” said Kesler. “We have hired a bunch of outstanding young people from the area to provide that great Jersey Mike’s experience.
“During our grand opening fundraiser from June 22 through June 26 we’ll be supporting the Carolina Beach Elementary School PTO to help them purchase much needed educational technology for the kids. We’re looking forward to serving the best subs on the planet to the great folks down here, visitors and locals alike,” he said.
Kesler is an exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owner who shares the company’s commitment to quality products and exceptional customer service, and who is dedicated to giving back to the local community.
Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $18 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1.5 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. This year, the company’s 6th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $4 million for 180 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 #1 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
