WEST ORANGE, NJ - Jersey Mike's Subs opened on Dec. 17 at 235 Prospect Avenue and the line to the door indicated that the community was happy to have them here.
Franchisee Jim Pond was on hand to greet customers and direct them to the cold and hot sub lines. “I’ve been a fan of Jersey Mike’s for as long as I can remember!” said Pond.
Pond was excited to open in West Orange and provide customers with subs made Mike’s Way® - which according to their press release, come "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 opened as a operation called "Mike's Subs." The name was changed to Jersey Mike's Subs and currently has 1,300 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The company has doubled in size over the past three years, and a 2014 Technomic report ranked Jersey Mike’s in the top five fastest-growing restaurant chains with sales above $200 million.
The business also believes in giving back to the community not only with quality products and customer service, but an investment in local charities. Since 2010, Jersey Mike's locations have raised close to $10 million and given out more than 750,000 free subs to help local causes.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. Contact the West Orange store, located in the K-Mart Shopping Plaza next to Chipotle, at (973) 325-3220.
