Jersey Mike’s is opening a fourth Marietta location at 1721 Powder Springs Rd, according to lease intel. The 1,750-square-foot location is part of Battlefield Village, a strip center that includes retailers and restaurants such as Starbucks, Avis, Domino’s Pizza and Dollar Tree.
The new Jersey Mike’s will occupy suite 7 and is set to open by the end of the year. The space was previously home to Cricket Wireless.
This fourth location is being brought to the area by local franchisee, Michael Stepter. “I have restaurant background with previous multi-unit experience with Domino’s and I was always impressed with the community involvement, product, customer service, and operations of Jersey Mike’s,” Stepter said in a statement to What Now Atlanta.
He also shared the cool fact that his partner for the sub shop is current NBA shooting guard Denzel Valentine. “He is a franchisee and part owner of the location, as well,” Stepter said.
Nationally known for offering “a sub above”, the New Jersey-founded fast-casual sub sandwich franchise has seen significant growth and success over the past several years. Since its start in 1956, Jersey Mike’s now has 2,000 restaurants open and under development nationwide. The brand was named the country’s fastest-growing sandwich chain in the 2019 Nation’s Restaurant News Top 200, and #1 Most Admired Fast-Casual Brand in QSR’s 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards.
The brand is also dedicated to giving back to local communities of which its restaurants are a part of. Since 2010, per a company press release, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $41 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
With a commitment to using quality products and providing exceptional customer service, subs are made “Mike’s Way” with fresh veggies and premium meats and cheeses that are sliced on the spot. Piled high on in-store baked bread and then topped off with an exquisite zing of “the juice” – a mix of red wine vinegar and olive oil blend, the brand has built up a passionate, loyal fan base.
Jersey Mike’s has multiple locations throughout Georgia. Three other Marietta locations are currently in operation at 3805 Dallas Hwy SW, 2960 Shallowford Road and 4400 Roswell Road.
