Jersey Mike’s Newcastle
CPM recently completed our first Jersey Mike’s Sub Shop in Newcastle, WA and we think it turned out fantastic! Jersey Mike’s is refreshing all of their existing stores and has a new design for all upcoming new stores. This just so happens to be the first location in the U.S. with the new design! We had our fair share of challenges working through this new design with a new client; but in the end the results show all of our hard work and efforts. We can’t wait to do more!
It started back in 1956, and was originally called Mike’s Subs. 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.
Today, Peter Cancro is CEO of Jersey Mike’s Franchise Systems Inc., overseeing more than 2,000 locations open and under development. Despite the title, Peter still jumps behind the counter to test his skills and demonstrate his passion for the product and the customer. He tries to instill that passion in every store he enters and with every franchisee he meets.
