Few people would pass up the chance to get a “free” lunch while helping to raise money for local schools.
If you are looking for a place to dine Wednesday, and don’t mind a submarine sandwich, you need to stop by Glen Ellyn’s newest sub shop. But, first you need to get a coupon.
Jersey Mike’s Subs opens Wednesday at 711 Roosevelt Road. But, on Tuesday Jersey Mike’s will be handing out coupons for a free regular size sub sandwich – with a small donation.
The coupons will be handed out from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. today at Glenbard South and West high schools, according to Glenbard High School District 87.
Diners who pick up the coupons must make at least a $1 donation, which will be donated to the boosters at both Glenbard South and West high schools.
Glen Ellyn Patch previously reported that during Jersey Mike’s grand opening, which will be held from Aug. 8 - 12, the sub shop planned to circulate 20,000 coupons.
As its name alludes, Jersey Mike’s was founded in New Jersey, specifically on the Jersey Shore in 1956. In 2011, the company said it had 69 new locations across the country. The Glen Ellyn location is owned by Bud and Raj Patel, a father and son team.
Jersey Mike’s store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. The restaurant is located at 711 E. Roosevelt Road and can be contacted at 630-793-9610.
