NEENAH – A national sub-sandwich chain has expanded its presence in the Fox Cities.
Jersey Mike’s opened on Wednesday at 1169 Winneconne Ave. Suite C at Neenah. The location was originally scheduled to open earlier, but staff issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have delayed those plans.
“You can blame COVID and jobs,” store manager Kyle Rowe told The Post-Crescent. The sub-store is still hiring, Rowe said, but now has enough staff to make him feel comfortable opening.
Neenah Jersey Mike‘s is unique in that in addition to food and delivery options, the restaurant has drive-thru service. Rowe called the location a “1% store” – of just over 2,000 Jersey Mike’s stores across the country, only 25 offer drive-thru.
“It’s a rarity for our brand,” he said.
Neenah is the sub-chain’s third restaurant in the Fox Cities. Jersey Mike’s opened its first location in the region last fall at 149 N. Mall Drive in Grand Chute, followed by a location at W3216 County KK in Darboy / Buchanan in April.
Jersey Mike’s in Neenah is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Call 920-215-6431 or visit jerseymikes.com for more information.
