Jersey Mike’s Subs is slated to open late 2019 in the now under construction development, Wolf Crossing.
Wolf Crossing is presently under construction at the south east intersection of IH-35 and University Avenue (Hwy 29).
We did a little research to find out about Jersey Mike’s Subs and what they might offer our little city.
They were founded in 1956 in New Jersey and they now have over 1500 locations in the US with many more in development.
Ok, so they make their own bread, slice their meats and cheeses fresh for each sandwich, cook their roast beef in-house, daily hand prep the veggies and use a special vinegar and oil blend for flavor…I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.
What makes Jersey Mike’s Subs Different, in their words…
“At Jersey Mike’s, we offer a sub above – one that’s measured in more than inches or seconds ‘til served. We carefully consider every aspect of what we do – every slice, every sandwich, every store – we provide our customers with sustenance and substance too. Here’s how we do it:
“Red wine vinegar and an olive oil blend. It’s how a Jersey Mike’s sub gets its exquisite zing. It’s how bites get boosted, and a great sub becomes an even better one. The Juice adds that certain something extra. An exclamation. The kind of exclamation… you can eat.”
“Our produce is grown, packed and shipped locally (where available), and then handled with the utmost care at our stores. When you eat one of our subs Mike’s Way, you can be certain that your veggies were prepped by hand earlier that day for the highest level of freshness and flavor.”
“When it comes to quality, refusing to compromise has been an important part of our heritage. It’s why we choose only the leanest, tastiest cuts of meats and fine, aged cheeses. We wouldn’t settle for any other way.”
“We trim and cook our roast beefs, USDA Choice Top Rounds, right in the store.”
“Slicing meats and cheeses right in front of you is not only the tastiest way to make a sub sandwich – it’s the only authentic way. Same goes with fresh grilling cheese steaks. At Jersey Mike’s, we would have it no other way.”
“Authentic Jersey bread is the foundation of a sub above. We bake our bread fresh in our stores every day. Traditional white and whole wheat. It’s the only way to have a truly authentic Jersey Mike’s sub.”
More About Jersey Mike’s Subs
“It started back in 1956, in this actual storefront location and was originally called Mike’s Subs. Mike opened the small shop in the sea-side town of Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
“You have to remember that in 1956, there were very few franchise restaurants or hamburger chains. No chain pizza, chicken or taco restaurants, either. In 1956, proprietors of mom-and-pop businesses would open their stores in basic storefront locations like you see here (image above).
“To survive and thrive, they had to offer exceptional quality products, coupled with unparalleled service. In 1956, Mike was unique in that the product he was offering was a relatively new item in American society – the submarine sandwich.”
