In time for back to school, Jersey Mike’s opened a new location on Monday, August 27, at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey. Operated by Gourmet Dining, LLC, a division of Compass Group USA, the new restaurant is located at Bishop Dougherty University Center.
“Seton Hall University is the fourth Jersey Mike’s Subs campus location run by Gourmet Dining Group, and we are happy to continue our expansion plans with the group,” says Phil Capozzi, VP Non-Traditional Development, Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems, Inc. “All of us at Jersey Mike’s Subs couldn’t be happier to bring our Sub Above culture and products to the students and faculty here.”
Other Jersey Mike’s campus locations run by the group are Rowan University (Glassboro, N.J.), Monmouth University (West Long Branch, N.J.) and Kean University (Union, N.J.).
“Gourmet Dining and Seton Hall are excited to open Jersey Mike’s on campus after almost two years of planning,” adds Joe Lally, VP Marketing, Gourmet Dining. “Seton Hall’s campus dining environment is a fast-paced, high-volume operation, and Jersey Mike’s enthusiastic culture is a perfect fit.”
