EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, will open in East Brunswick on June 25. Franchise owner Chris Rigassio and his father Ron Rigassio will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, June 25 to Sunday, June 29 to support TOPSoccer.

The new restaurant, located at 285 Route 18 South, is circulating 10,000 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to TOPSoccer. In addition, 2,500 flyers containing various offers will be distributed. For each offer redeemed, Jersey Mike’s will donate $2 to TOPSoccer.  Customers must have a coupon to be eligible.

The East Brunswick TOPSoccer program (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability.

“Growing up in Brick, NJ, I was surrounded by Jersey Mike’s product and culture my entire life,” said Chris Rigassio.  “When I began looking into franchising opportunities, my father and I thought Jersey Mike’s would be a perfect fit for us to go into business together.  For the past three years leading up to this opening, I had the chance to work and gain more experience at some of Jersey Mike’s top locations in New Jersey and California.”

Chris added, “It’s an exciting time for the brand as we’re growing rapidly throughout our home state.  I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to develop the brand in East Brunswick and other parts of North Jersey.  With each grand opening we’re able to make a difference for more and more communities.  In East Brunswick, we’re excited to partner with TOPSoccer and support their programs that help children with disabilities.”

The Rigassios 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 750,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide.  In just three years, the company has nearly doubled in size.  A 2014 Technomic report ranked Jersey Mike’s in the top five fastest-growing restaurant chains with sales above $200 million.

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.

This is the 1st Jersey Mike’s location for the Rigassios.

The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.  You can contact this location directly at (732) 257-3000.

Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 1,300 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.
