SILER CITY – Here’s one sub that won’t let you down. The newest Jersey Mike’s Subs in Siler City held its grand opening Aug. 30 at 1119 E. 11th St. just off Highway 64 and was greeted community leaders, supporters and mouth-watering customers.
“We’re really excited to bring the best sub sandwich on the planet to Siler City,” said Charlie Farris, one of the co-owners of the new Jersey Mike’s. “We have several stores in Chapel Hill and are excited to bring it to Siler City. We have great employees and a wonderful manager that lives nearby, so we really are making this a part of the community.”
Ernest Marshall, Peyton Moody, Denis de St. Aubin Jr., Kimberly Packard, Siler City Mayor Chip Price, Town Manager Hank Raper and Executive Director of the Siler Area Chamber of Commerce Josh Harris were among those in attendance for the ceremony.
“It’s exciting to have a new food option for the residents of Siler City,” Raper said. “It’s good to see someone provide another good quality product for the people who live here in this community.”
This Jersey Mike’s franchise group doesn’t just make delicious subs, they also give back to the communities they serve.
During its first five days after opening, the group gave anyone who donated $2 to The Chatham Education Foundation a free sub with proof of donation.
“We do things like that throughout the year,” Farris said. “Spirit nights, give-back nights for schools and nonprofits in the community is a big part of what we do.”
“We’re ecstatic about Jersey Mike’s,” Harris said of the grand opening. “I know Charlie is going to be a good advocate, partner for the benefit of the community. We’re lucky to have him here and really excited about what the future holds, from here on out, with Jersey Mike’s being part of Siler City.”
Jersey Mike’s is open every day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
