Jersey Mike’s Subs officially opened its doors at the Farmington Crossroads Shopping Center, 12 Mile and Farmington Road in Farmington Hills Wednesday.
Franchise owners Robert Middleton, Bill Biga, and Carl Chandler will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser through Sunday to support the Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Association.The new restaurant distributed 10,000 coupons offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to the charity, which supports emergency services personnel and their families. Launched at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike's opened 92 new restaurants throughout the country in 2012, a 33 percent increase in new store growth over 2011. Since 2010, locations throughout the country have raised almost $7 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes. “We chose to partner with the Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Association because our grand opening date falls so closely to September 11," Middleton said. "Twelve years later, as we commemorate this date, we are reminded of the brave men and women who answered the call on that day to protect and serve us. We are so grateful to the men and women in our Police and Fire Departments that we felt a strong desire to give back in this meaningful way.”
This is the third Jersey Mike’s location for Middleton, Biga, and Chandler; the other two are in Shelby Township and Rochester Hills. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. For information, call 248-489-1111.
