Jersey Mike’s Takes Care of L.A.

Besides turning 55, Jersey Mike's is also celebrating the opening of 50 new stores in the Los Angeles area. 

This short video celebrates that milestone and the 50 charities that have benefitted with each opening. When Peter Cancro founded the sandwich chain on the Jersey Shore, he was devoted to making a difference in the company's local communities. This mission continues today in California--and across the country.

Trickle-Down Theory

There was a time when the only place you could find Black Angus beef on a menu was at some of the nation’s finest steakhouses.

New LTO First in Five Years at Jersey Mike’s

In celebration of its 55thanniversary and for a limited time only, Jersey Mike’s Subs is introducing the “Chicka-Phila-Roni” sub. The sub will be available at Jersey Mike’s stores nationwide through February, in time for football playoff madness.

Inspired by a group of Jersey Mike’s aficionados—Dallas pro athletes who take their Jersey Mike’s subs seriously and like their chicken with an attitude—the Chicka-Phila-Roni is as unique as its name.

2. The Food Truck Obsession

Hunger for Change

It usually takes a trade show or the threat of legislation to bring quick-service competitors together, but occasionally the industry puts business aside and rallies around a single cause. In the wake of the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina, brands flocked to the Gulf Coast to offer assistance. More than four years later, they again seem to have found a common charitable pursuit.
