Jersey Mike’s prides itself on providing “not just a sub, but an experience.” Franchise owner Sean Schoonover trained at the original store to deliver the most authentic Jersey experience possible. Their roast beef is trimmed, tied, and cooked in house to medium rare, while their meats and cheeses (which are always sliced to order) are shipped each day along with their bread from their tried-and-true Jersey distributors.
Jersey Mike’s is devoted to giving back to the community, and the new location has teamed up with “Powerful Beyond Measure,” a non-profit organization that focuses on youth development in low-income families. From December 4-8, the store will give away a free sub to customers who donate a dollar or more to PBM with a coupon (30,000 of which will be distributed to the neighborhood during launch week, and which will also be available at www.teamwashington.com).”
