ABERDEEN – The Township Council and the Economic Business Council (EBC) have welcomed Jersey Mike’s Subs to the Aberdeen Plaza at Route 35 South and Cliffwood Avenue in Aberdeen Township.
Municipal officials said the business is the sixth Jersey Mike’s Subs franchise for Evan Mayer, who owns locations in Ocean, Monmouth and Morris counties.
The Aberdeen Township location at 311 Route 35 is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The business offers curbside pickup and delivery.
Operations at the sub shop are directed by Store Operator/General Manager Tom Orrok.
Mayer and Orrok have a combined 36 years of experience with Jersey Mike’s Subs. Both men grew up in Point Pleasant, where Jersey Mike’s Subs originated, and began working for the chain as high school students at the age of 15, according to Aberdeen Township officials.
“Our passion for sports and being part of a team carried over into our careers as we pride ourselves on positive culture and teamwork,” Mayer said. “We are excited to have the opportunity to grow and look forward to working alongside local residents and business owners within this welcoming community.”
Mayor Fred Tagliarini welcomed the business owners to the community.
“Following last fall’s debut of L.A. Fitness, the opening of Jersey Mike’s Subs marks another important milestone in the re-imagination of this well located property in the wake of A&P’s closure,” the mayor said.
Economic Business Council Chairman Carmine Visone said, “The council is very excited to see this New Jersey-grown national chain join L.A. Fitness at this highly visible center. This location is ideal for a new business coming into town and we look forward to seeing more new tenants open. The council stands at the forefront to support all new businesses that open in our township,”
