Founded in 1956 and based in Manasquan, New Jersey, the chain is known for its cold and hot sub sandwiches, from its best-selling BLTs to more than a dozen types of cheesesteak subs.
Jersey Mike‘s has more than two dozen stores in Massachusetts. He opened his Franklin store on West Central Street three years ago with a similar fundraiser for the Franklin High School athletic department.
In Milford, the sub-boutique is located in a 1,260 square foot space at Milford Crossing, 128 Medway Road (Route 109), between Chipotle and Eros Nails & Spa. The space was once used by a hair salon.
O’Loughlin said he and his partner are looking forward to bringing Milford their subs, which are always prepared “Mike’s Way” – with fresh vegetables, onions, lettuce and tomatoes – and topped with ” The Juice”, a signature blend of red wine vinegar and olive oil.
“Our tagline is ‘A Sub Above’ and we try to live up to it in giving back but also in the products we make,” O’Loughlin said. “All of our meats and cheeses are fresh to order, our cheesesteaks are grilled fresh on the grill, we order our produce locally, we sort it daily, we cut it fresh daily, our breads are baked fresh daily .
“It’s great to open in Milford and we’re delighted.”
