Jersey Mike’s is an interesting story. It was just a sandwich shop, that a high school football player worked at part time. When the owner planned to sell the company, the player knew that this could be a stepping stone to greater things. He approached his football coach for help, and impassioned by the boy’s pleas, he loaned him the seed money to make his dream come true.
I don’t know for a fact, but that might be the reason that Jersey Mike’s wants to celebrate those that go… a Sub Above, as a way of repaying the man that made his dream come true. Regardless if that is the facts, you can pay back, or have Jersey Mike’s pay back if lucky, the person who goes a Sub Above in your community.
