Jersey Mike's to Open East Blvd. Location June 20 with Free Subs

Jersey Mike's Subs, known for its fresh sliced/fresh grilled East
Coast-style subs, will officially open the doors to its 25th location
in the Greater Charlotte area on June 20. Franchise owners Nick Smith
and Rodger Blake-Ward will hold a grand opening and free sub
fundraiser from Wed., June 20 to Sun., June 24 to support the Levine
Children's Hospital.

The new restaurant, located at 1300 East Boulevard, will circulate
10,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub
for a minimum $1 contribution to the hospital.

Opened in 2007, the Levine Children's Hospital is a 234-bed children's
facility that combines the medical expertise the community already
relies on with a spectacular new state-of-the-art facility. The
hospital is designed to care for the physical and emotional needs of
children and their families.

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.

Nick Smith and Rodger Blake-Ward 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.

"We wanted to support a charity that was close to home, and with the
Levine Children's Hospital being right around the corner we definitely
accomplished that," said Blake-Ward. "As business owners, we have a
great opportunity to make a difference in our community. We are
looking forward to our grand opening fundraiser and the chance to
continue giving back with Jersey Mike's."

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.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact
this store directly at (704) 910-1717.
