Dubbed the East Coast sub sensation – Jersey Mike’s - is set to open its first Culver City premises at 4114 Sepulveda Blvd. (in the same building as the recently-opened Starbucks), on Wed. Jan. 9.
Jersey Mike’s opened its first store on the Jersey Shore in 1956. Today it boasts 750 stores nationwide and opened 69 new stores in 2011 alone. Culver City franchise owner Alvaro Garcia will hold a grand opening and free sub fundraiser from Wed. Jan. 9 through Sun. Jan. 13 to support Teen Center of Culver City.
According to a company press release, the new restaurant will circulate 5,000 coupons throughout the community, offering a free regular sub for a minimum $1 contribution to Teen Center of Culver City.
The Teen Center of Culver City serves high school and middle school students who live in Culver City or attend a Culver City Unified School. The Teen Center prides itself on being a positive outlet for youth and teens in Culver City.
“This grand opening fundraiser is a great opportunity to make a difference for the youth in our community,” Garcia said in a statement. “At Jersey Mike’s we are passionate about giving back to the communities we serve and this partnership with the Teen Center is a perfect fit for our grand opening.”
This is the Garcia’s ninth Jersey Mike’s location. In June 2011, he opened his first Jersey Mike’s location in Rancho Cucamonga. Garcia also owns Jersey Mike’s locations in Fountain Valley, Costa Mesa, La Verne, Glendora, Upland, Marina del Rey and Long Beach.
Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. You can contact this store directly at 310-391-6888.
