Jersey Mike's

The Jersey Mike's franchise's Super Sub was created in Point Pleasant, New Jersey,  in 1956. Peter Cancro started working in the sandwich business when he was 14 years old. A few years later at the age of 17, before state law allowed him to operate a slicing machine, Cancro bought the original Jersey Mike's location. The company's subs are known for their red wine vinegar and an olive oil blend. Its produce is grown, packed and shipped locally, and then handled with the care at its stores. When you eat a sub the Mike’s Way, you can be certain that your veggies were prepped by hand earlier that day for the highest level of freshness and flavor.
