MARTINSVILLE, VA – The much anticipated opening of Jersey Mike’s Subs in Martinsville happened Wednesday morning.
The new location has an address of 101 Commonwealth Boulevard West Suite D.
“I'm super excited. I'm a hometown boy, grew up here in Martinsville, Virginia, so really excited to be opening a Jersey Mike’s here in Martinsville,” one of the franchise owners, Gordon Pannill, told BTW21 News.
The company says it believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same.
That's why the franchise owners are hosting a fundraiser from Wednesday to Sunday to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Blue Ridge.
Customers who received a special fundraising coupon prior to the opening can make a minimum $3 contribution to the Boys & Girls Clubs in exchange for a regular sub.
Remember, customers must have a coupon to be eligible.
Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s Subs' more than 2,200 locations nationwide have raised nearly $90 million for local charities.
The restaurant is still hiring.
“We're always looking for great candidates. Gordon and I are opening a decent amount of stores in Virginia, so just trying to give the best people in the restaurant industry a great opportunity,” the other franchise owner Mookie Golden said.

Henry County resident Angus Hobson was at the grand opening to get a taste of the quality that he likes.
“The quality, I guess, is a little better. It’s just something different. It breaks up the monotony. It taste different. It’s got a little bit different flavor profile and different ingredients,” Hobson stated.
Hobson says he is happy to see many new businesses choosing to come to Martinsville recently.
“Definitely from an economic perspective it’s looking great, because after the recession in 08, we kind of had a a little bit of a down turn. It’s nice to see things kind of getting back on track,” he said.
You can eat in-store, order carryout, curbside pickup or delivery on Jersey Mike’s website or through the app.
The restaurant’s hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
