Jersey Mike's Enters Chicago Market
“The Jersey Mike’s brand is thriving and our sub-culture of raving fans is rapidly expanding,” says Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO. “It’s a big milestone to enter the Chicago market, and with committed franchisees, a fresh delicious product, and a friendly environment we see lots of opportunity.”
Jersey Mike’s is growing in other areas of the country as well. The sub franchise recently opened its 30th store in California and its 5th in Arizona.
“Not only are we seeing tremendous excitement about our brand from consumers, but we’re also hearing from developers who are interested in the concept,” says Hoyt Jones, president, Jersey Mike’s. “Just recently in Las Vegas, the sales team received significant interest at the Multi-Unit Franchising Conference.”
The history of the company is one of entrepreneurship and giving back. Cancro started the company at age 17, before he was even legally able to slice a sub. Today, Jersey Mike’s has more than 400 locations open and in-development nationwide. The company remains committed to making a difference in the communities it serves. Last year, the company’s fundraising efforts delivered more than $250,000 to local organizations.
