One of my favorite sandwich places is finally expanding in Lubbock and it has been something I have been waiting for.

Jersey Mike's Subs has only one location in Lubbock but that is now finally changing. This chain actually was created back in 1956.

Below is the actual storefront location and was originally called Mike's Subs. According to their website, "Mike opened the small shop in the sea-side town of Point Pleasant, New Jersey. You have to remember that in 1956, there were very few franchise restaurants or hamburger chains. No chain pizza, chicken or taco restaurants, either. In 1956, proprietors of mom-and-pop businesses would open their stores in basic storefront locations like you see here. To survive and thrive, they had to offer exceptional quality products, coupled with unparalleled service. In 1956, Mike was unique in that the product he was offering was a relatively new item in American society – the submarine sandwich."

Fast forward to today, the CEO Peter Cancro is CEO is overseeing more than 2,000 locations open and under development. Jersey Mike's is known to offer "a sub above – one that’s measured in more than inches or seconds ‘til served."

They say their produce is grown, packed and shipped locally (where available), and then handled with the utmost care at our stores. When you eat one of our subs Mike’s Way, you can be certain that your veggies were prepped by hand earlier that day for the highest level of freshness and flavor.

My favorite part about their sandwich shop? Getting it Mike's way. Their Red wine vinegar and an olive oil blend are the best.

Jersey Mike's is currently located at 6319 82nd St Suite #300, Lubbock, TX 79424. Their second location is coming soon to 11417 Slide Road, Lubbock, TX. Which is right by the new Johnny Fab's Cadillixan Grill at 114th and Slide.

There is not a set date on when it will open but we will keep you updated when we find out more details.
