Franchise owners Andrew Brooks and Ryan Hendrix will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, to Sunday, Feb. 18, to support Ooltewah Middle School.

The new restaurant, at 5975 Elementary Way, is circulating 7,500 coupons throughout the community offering a free regular sub for a minimum $3 contribution to Ooltewah Middle School. Customers must have a coupon to be eligible. 

“Please come out and help us celebrate the newest addition to the Chattanooga Jersey Mike’s family,” said Mr. Brooks.

Mr. Brooks and Mr. Hendrix are exemplary Jersey Mike’s franchise owners who shares 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 $28 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.  Last year, the company’s 7th Annual Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving in March raised more than $5.5 million for nearly 150 charities throughout the country.

Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 1,500 restaurants open and under development nationwide. 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 423 521-5292.
