Jersey Mike’s Subs Opens First Restaurant in Moorestown

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, officially opened its doors in Moorestown on June 27.  Franchise owners John Helm and Matt Catania held a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed., June 27 to Sun., July 1 to support Moorestown High School.

The new restaurant, located at 1624 Nixon Drive, circulated 10,000 coupons throughout the community and in the Burlington County Times and the Moorestown Sun, which offered a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Moorestown High School.

Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s continued its steady growth in 2011 opening 69 new restaurants throughout the country, a 15 percent increase overall.  The popular sub shop wins best sub awards in virtually every market it enters.

John Helm and Matt Catania exemplify Jersey Mike’s quest for excellence as it selects 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.  In 2011, locations throughout the country raised more than $2 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 200,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

“As high school basketball coaches, John and I know how important it is to give back to the schools,” said Catania.  “Partnering with Moorestown High School for our grand opening is a great way for us to be a part of the community and give back to the students here.  We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with the school system and we are excited to be opening our doors in Moorestown.”

Passionate Jersey Mike’s fans crave their subs made Mike’s Way with onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a signature blend of olive oil, red wine vinegar and spices.  The company uses only private labeled meats and cheeses that are sliced fresh for each sub sandwich and piled high on in-store baked bread.  Everything is quickly made to order for each customer, just the way the first subs were made at the original Jersey Mike’s more than fifty years ago.  The Jersey Mike’s experience always includes its trademark neighborly banter served up by a high-energy Jersey Mike’s team.

Helm and Catania are owners of an additional Jersey Mike’s location in Cinnaminson, N.J., which they opened in October 2011.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at (856) 638-5041.
